3600Mhz vs 4000Mhz

Do I need 3600Mhz or 4000Mhz for my build?

Here's the 3600Mhz variant: http://gskill.com/en/product/f4-3600c16q-32gtzr

And here's the 4000Mhz variant: http://gskill.com/en/product/f4-4000c17q-32gtzr

And also got a side question: does anyone know when we'll be able to see more variants of G.Skill's Trident Z Royals?

Intel sees diminishing returns beyond 2666MHz, so both of those kits are too much. Get a 3200MHz (or even 3000MHz) kit and you should be fine

What does that actually mean? Because if I look to the product page of the 9900K then I see under the 'Memory Specifications' that the 'Memory Types' is 'DDR4-2666'. But what does this exactly mean?

DDR4 2666 is the highest frequency the chip will support (without using XMP)
