Hi All, I just got the 16GB Ram upgrade. Don't know what to do on the Bios Setting.
Should I use Ganged or Unganged?

Ram: G.Skill Ripjaw X series 16GB (4 X 4GB modules)
Power: Corsair 750W

Leave it as whatever the default was.
Ganged increases the speed, but adds latency
Unganged lowers the latency, but also drops the speed.
Benchmarks show the benefits to cancel each other out, and you don't get a performance boost either way.
