Hello,
I just bought 2 sets of the Ares G. Skill 2x8GB dual channel RAM so thats 32GB of Ram total. I recently just got a great deal on the Corsair Vengeance 4x4GB quad channel RAM 16 GB total.

I currently have the ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Mobo

Which setup will i get the better RAM performance? 4x8GB of dual channel from Ares G. Skill or 4x4GB of quad channel from Corsair Vengeance?

Thanks in Advance

16gb Quad channel. You won't even need 32gbs of ram unless your super rich or you are an extremem video editor or engineer something like that.

Well, can u post links to the RAM?

Make sure that u got the right voltage.

It is bad idea to mix RAM, even if it mostly works.

Use the 16GB and be done.

The performance is not noticeable in the real world.

Only bench-marking apps will pick up some difference.

Thanks for the quick feedback guys, i appreciate it. I'm actually in the process of building my pc.
I will use it mainly for movies, streaming videos and gaming "Diablo III".

G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2x8GB): i bought 2 sets during the newegg shocker special. $160 total

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 15% off promo from newegg plus $20 off over $100 purchase: $81
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

would it be a good idea to use both the Corsair Vengeance and the Ares G. Skill all together?

Thanks again

They are different voltage sticks, but use the Corsair.

That is what I would do.

And if u need more RAM, get more of the same.
