You're fine. Maybe see a Doc about the OCD but yeah, fine
Ah okay, thanks for the clarification dude. And you’re right, my OCD sometimes gets my head in

I run my RAM at 2933 atm (have some stability issues at 3066 and 3200), and I notice no difference compared to 3200, aside from marginally higher scores in Cinebench. I wouldn't worry about it

Yeah it's only in super productivity heavy CPU use you will see any gains. Gaming rounds off around 3000.

Which I personally never used, every really used them once when I tested my CPU of a "fun" overclocking testing

I'll just throw this out there...the question is not what frequency is the sweet spot but what IC

Anything Samsung B die and Ryzen gets along with it like a house on fire....and single sided single rank

Avoid timings that differ...like 15-16-16 etc...these are often Hynix ICs and not well loved unless low frequency high latency (not loved...tolerated)

Ryzen also like a bit of frequency so 3200 is indeed a sweet spot.

Basically since AMD is giving these processors away at a great price...use some of the savings and get good RAM

G.skill Trident Z 14-14-14-34 32GB 4x8 for example
