As extensive system testing with real applications has shown, high RAM frequency (above ~1333 MHz) or an excessive quantity of RAM is of little value to most desktop enthusiast PCs and rarely ever worth the expense. For servers more RAM is good but for most desktops 4-8 GB. is plenty of RAM unless you run some specific app. that can benefit from a larger quantity of RAM.

The RAM sellers have been trying for years to convince naive consumers that they need more RAM than is realistic or of actual value. With RAM prices at all time lows due to over-production, the RAM makers are desperate to generate sales any way they can. This is a perfect example of more is not better. Once your system has enough RAM, you are just wasting your money to buy more.

Kingston being conservative with their HyperX ratings as usual. Most Hynix H5TQ2G83BFR-H9C based kits can do 9-11-9-27@1866MJz at just 1.50V easy (G.Skill Ripjaws X and Corsair v5.11).

It's starting to get boring seeing most kits these days based off Hynix.
