So i have Corsair vengeance LPX 8gb ddr4 with clock speed of 2400Mhz. Recently i bought 8Gb DDR4 ram same company everything is same except the clock speed which is 3000 Mhz. I know if i install it my pc will reduce its speed to the memory which has the least clock speed. But what i wanna know is will it be compatible and work on my pc? My motherboard is MSI Z370 krait gaming.

Na not much difference at all between 2400 & 3000. What will make more of a difference is running ram in dual channel. Dual channel doubles the bandwidth between cpu and ram and with that allows the cpu do more and probably see a reasonable boost in some cpu intensive games.

Won't harm anything trying. It's always a gamble mixing ram even if they were the same spec.
ok i will try and one last question if it works will the 600 mhz down difference will make a significant amount of difference in fps in gaming? i have gtx 1080 and i-7 8700?
