Memory setting questions

I'm not concerned about overclocking my memory but in checking my ASUS Maximus X Hero BIOS I see that the frequency was already set to below the 3600 memory. There is an option in the drop down that I can choose to set to 3600 but is that better than leaving it to default settings or should I set the AI OC Tuner to XMP? At the least I want to get out the memory what I've paid for.
I know zilch about memory settings.
Thanks.

Im using XPG ddr4 3000Mhz Ram and when I installed it I was only getting 2666Mhz so I checked my BIOS and changed the ram profile to 3066Mhz and now it works fine.
My motherboard is currently not with me or i could give the procedure.

I set mine to XMP and it's working fine. Not sure why I can't manually choose the profile but this works so I'm good.
