Hello, iam rebuilding my PC for gaming in 1440p only(165Hz monitor) with AAA games like a Far Cry 6, RDR2, Forza Horizon 5 etc. in max graphics settings

I will OC my 9700k in 4.8 probably (I don't know if a higher clock will make sense)

rtx 3070 depending on what model and art to buy, I will try to do OC

i have z370 asrock gaming k6

and now i have 2x8GB DDR4 BLE8G4D34AEEAK.K8FB Ballistix Elite Crucial 3466Mhz - 3466 CL16 (when i setup it on 3600 manually with other settings unchanged it doesent work)



Is changing my ram to something 4000Mhz with CL18 increase my FPS? Does it make sense?



If it would give rise to what size?

maybe it's better somewhere to find some settings for my memory so that they do at least the 3800?
The efficient card, the CPU after OC will also be nice, only these RAMs do not match the whole thing, but if I have to get 1FPS by changing RAM, I will give it a rest

Memory won't play much of a role when gaming at 1440p, it relies mostly on your graphics card.

I dont imagine a significant difference in such a small change either. The juice isn't worth the squeeze.
