Can you overclock the ram (2x 8Gb 2400mhz kingston hyperx fury) alone on an i5-7400 system? Planning to get a mobo either an Asus rog strix B250G or MSI Z270 gaming m3. Anywy, it's an old system, so it needs an old upgrade. Let me know your thoughts though. *TIA 😉

That is a feature only for Z-series motherboards.

It would be a waste of money to get a Z mobo with the intention of OC'ing the ram, only to put a locked cpu in it.
Makes more sense to get a K cpu and pair it with a non-Z board. At least there, you'll benefit from the higher base and boost clocks of the K processor.
Cpu frequency > memory frequency. [On Intel cpus at least.]
