Im decided to sell CORSAIR DOMINATOR PLATINUM 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 DRAM 2400MHz (CMD16GX3M4A2400C9)
and want buy G.Skill TridentX ..I also like red look of ram
With dominator ram I cant boot with 2400 mhz speed and I can boot with 2133 mhz ..but computer blue screen or frozen.
Is it better to go with 4x4gb or 2x8gb?
Will the RAM run in something beyond Dual Channel if there is 4 Dimms?
Also, what model of G.Skill do you all suggest?
Any suggestions around a slower speed memory or higher speed?
Im also think about deliding cpu..can this help achieve more memory speed?
cpu i7 3770K 4.6 1.3V
asus maximus formula V
gtx 680 sc 2gb
Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB SSD
monitor YAMAKASI 30 inch 2560x1600

I would go with 1600 or 1866 for stability, you won't really see a difference with that RAM.

2x8GB of RAM gives you the ability to upgrade in the future, but you won't really see a difference between 4x4 or 2x8. You will still run in dual channel, you'll just happen to have 4 DIMMs filled.
