Real world improvement probably not much but UserBenchmark seems to think I got at least 8% improvement so far after I started trimming the timings.

Getting DDR4-3600 likely not worth the price over DDR4-3200 but prices are changing quite quickly it seems. If you're buying new maybe it makes sense to go for 3600 but if your upgrading your ram maybe not. I'd try OC-ing it first to see what your kit can do before forking out the cash for such a small bump in speed.
