Ram 4X4gb or 2x8gb??

I was wondering I already have dual channel Ram set up 2x4gb and I want to put in two more 4gb sticks but since it is only dual channel is it a better idea to spend more money on two sticks of 8gb ram?

    The performance difference would not be too noticeable.

    2 x 8 gigabyte sticks is more easy on the systems memory controller(can run better timings sometimes).

    Please check your motherboard makers site for a QVL to minimize any chances of getting 2 pairs that do not get along(it is VERY rare, but can happen).

    Thanks, I was just going to get the same ram I have n there now KHX 1600mhz, but I noticed there are different kinds of 4gb KHX blue ram
  3. less modules = easier for memory controller on CPU = better OCs and / or better timings
