i am quite surprised.

Well obviously my DDR2 example makes no sense (how much performance benefit are you gonna gain from 216MHz? not much...), but I thought it would become more relevant with the newer generation of DDR 4 and possibly DDR 5 RAMs.
Mostly because you mentioned your ddr2 example which is quite old and obselete, and yes, the benefits are close to negligible thats why no one bothered to reply xD

Now back to the current times, overclocking ddr4 ram is almost exclusively for ryzen chips since it helps in achieving a slight boost in the overclock due to the infinity fabric in ryzen CPUs. For intel chips faster ram is almost useless so overclocking is pointless. So tldr: depends on the CPU.
