I'm building an X79 system and I am about to choose 16 gigs of RAM. I plan to assign 10 gig as a RAM drive, leaving 6 for the system.
Would it be better to go for a single four-DIMM set or for a couple of two-DIMM sets? All DIMMS are Corsair Vengeance of the same exact spec, the only difference is the number of modules per set.
For some the single 4-DIMM set would be preferable because all four modules are supposedly matched with each other, whereas if I choose two 2-DIMM sets the modules in those are only matched within each individual pair. Does it make any difference in stability or performance?
