16GB ram upgrade dual. Channel or quad?

I'm lookin at ram for a computer build. The mobo and intel 2500k both support dual channel. If I want 16GB should I buy two 8GB dual channel kits or one 16 GB quad channel kit. Thanks

  1. You can do either as long as the two kits are exactly the same. The one 16 gb kit would be the best option because they would have been tested as a complete set where the two seperate kits would only be tested as 8 gb sets seperatly.
  2. I would be buying two 8GB kits of the same model from Corsair. Would it affect performance tho if i went with one over the other?
