I've got a motherboard with 2x1.2V RAM slots and a i5-7500 CPU that supports up to 2400MHz at 1.35V (DDR4-2133/2400, DDR3L-1333/1600 @ 1.35V ). I recently bought a dual-kit 1.35V 3200MHz RAM.

Does anyone know whether raising the voltage on the RAM slots from 1.2V to 1.35V could have an increase in performance? Or does this simply not matter, since the CPU supports a max of 2400MHz anyway?

List the motherboard model.

No reason you shouldn't be able to run the memory at 3200Mhz, unless it is an OEM board that doesn't support XMP profiles.

If it can only run at 2400Mhz and 1.2 volts works, that is preferable, less power wasted and less heat in the CPU memory controller.

It states 2133 MHz memory, but Task Manager states it's using 2400 MHz.
