It depends on the board they are using and if it can handle anything more than the standard 2133mhz. Considering they are building you a non-K based build, they are likely not using a Z170 chipset. Find that out first.

It is a Z170 motherboard. I am choosing non K processor. K processor also available. Most likely I would not overclock in laptop. Hence non K.

For what you are doing there is a small benefit to getting faster memory, that said over 3000 mhz may not work properly because running memory over the stock 2133mhz is technically overclocking the memory controller. a K processor can handle the push beyond around 2666-3000, a non K cannot. So DDR4 3000 should be what to get tops.
