yes with 4x4gb sticks u will get some speed than 8x2gb ,,but u will not notice much difference between them ..u can go with any one based on the cost..the difference between them is found only when u run benchmarks..but for me 4x4gb will be a better bet
It used to be true that less sticks ment your system ran easier...now I dont know what is optimal.
I just want the best ram setup.....1600, 1866, 2133...1x8gb, 2x4gb, 2x8gb or 4x4gb.....not sure what combo is better then my current Corsair Vengence setup (9-9-9-24).
