I upgraded my ram the other day to vengeance lpx 3000mhz 16gb from a 8gb 2400mhz stick. I noticed in my bios settings that the stock setting for my motherboard is 2133mhz for ddr4 and when I enable XMP, it increases it to 3000mhz. Should I enable XMP for performance gains? Or leave as is for safety measure. I mostly just play video games and do school work.

I also built this PC awhile ago. I have a i5 6600k, zotac gtx 980 amp! edition gpu, zi170-a pro motherboard and a cooler master hyper 212 evo cpu cooler.

Also another random question I have is what might be a safe overclock for the cpu would be since I don't have the best cpu cooler. I'm very new to changing settings on my computer.
Thanks.
