Difference between 2400/3400 mhz ram for photo editing?

I'm building a high end photo editing machine.

I've narrowed down to these 4 options.
In real terms is there any benifit to the faster mhz?
Other than this - can you help me understand the difference/benefits of the options between ripjaws and trident?

$499 G.SKILL F4-2400C15Q-64GVR 64GB (16GBX4) DDR4 2400MHZ 1.2V RIPJAWS V RED
$589 G.SKILL F4-3200C16Q-64GVK 64GB (16GBX4) DDR4 3200MHZ 1.35V RIPJAWS V BLACK
$629 G.SKILL F4-3333C16Q-64GTZ 64GB (16GBX4)DDR4 3333MHZ 1.35V TRIDENT
$675 G.SKILL F4-3400C16Q-64GTZ 64GB (16GBX4)DDR4 3400MHZ 1.35V TRIDENT Z

The memory will be used in this:

    Primary is photo editing ? If so 32GB should more than handle anything you work on, for that I'd go a 2x16GB. Do video you might think 64GB. The Trident Z and Ripjaws V are extremely close and from like sets (same data rate and CL you are unlikely to see a difference, the TriZs seem to have a bit more OC headroom. I'm running TriZs in 3200/14, though for your stated purpose, the 3200/16 in either RJ V or TriZ should more than suffice. Getting above 3200 Prices jump and aren't really price to performance a good buy

    We do occasional video work with 4k, so I'm going to spring for the extra RAM. Perhaps the Trident 3333 is the sweet spot for me here?
  3. Could well be, budget of course plays in, if the price difference couldn't be better used elsewhere then go for it ;) And let us know how you like them ;)
