Hey there. Thinking about upgrading from 2x8 to 2x16. I'm considering a set of vengeance LPX 2666mhz, as this is the max frequency my motherboard supports.

The specific product I'm thinking of getting is this https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0134EW44S?tag=pangoly03-20 (please say if there's any red flags I'm too dumb to notice).

However, I keep seeing everywhere in consumer reviews that 2666mhz can only be reached through overclocking, and that the actual frequency is 2133mhz.

What's this about? Is it still worth getting?

through overclocking means the 2666mhz is an XMP one, with 2133 JEDEC speeds. if your cpu does support 2666 jedec, and the motherboard too, then 2666 jedec will be able to be achieved.
