Cant seem to find the answer anywhere so maybe you guys can help

Does this ram support x79 socket and quad channel MBO?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

or would i be better of getting some that says it dose support sandy bridge-E and quad channel like this.

the first one has lower latency and better timings but i want to make sure its going to work with my x79 chip-set

You would be better off with quad channel kit that is optimized.

With more sticks u are increasing the chance of bad RAM stick.

It works fine in most cases. But there is a reason for it.

i guess what i don't understand if u compare that one to
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

this has lower timings and lower latency so wouldn't it make it faster? or am i missing something

You would never notice any difference!
