Memory Channels 2

Check direct canada for a kit, also in b.c usually cheaper than NCIX.

The board supports 2133 natively but you should be able to activate XMP profile in bios to higher speeds.
If you get 3000mhz ram it will boot at 2133, then enable xmp and your set

You made the correct choice. H170 only supports 2133mhz officially. Some boards may try to circumvent this but it is not the norm - even with XMP profiles you are typically limited to 2133mhz.
