Overclocking on P8-Z77-V PRO

So I played around with the TPU function on the motherboard. I let it overclock the system up until about 4.2ghz.

The RAM I am currently running is rated for 2133mhz, but the TPU only boosted the sticks to 1923mhz or so.

My question is, would it be beneficial to go into X.M.P. and boost the sticks to 2133mhz (will probably come out to 2197mhz since the motherboard seems to boost the RAM frequency as the BCLK on the processor is increased) or am I better off leaving it as such?

I'm currently running
