Motherboard usually do not have any direct implication on performance. What makes you think it is holding back?
Ah I’m still new to all this , I seen that my ram wasn’t preforming like it was supposed to and just assumed it may have been the motherboard since my other parts seem okay.

With that board your ram is going to be limited to 2400 but even getting a z170 or z270 board to run the ram faster is not going to give you much of a performance boost, most definitely not one worth the cost of the board.

So would u recommend just keeping the board until I eventually upgrade my cpu and getting a new board then ?

Your motherboard can run it @2400mhz max. If you want faster speed you have to change both motherboard and RAM both. Depending on the kind of work you do on the PC it may or may not be beneficial. Here's some gaming comparison...
