Does it make any difference on ram with 1x8 vs 2x4 vs 4x2 ?

Any difference on performance?

  1. 1x8 will run in single channel which will be slower, and 4x2 will put more stress on your memory controller
  2. So that means 4x2 IS faster?

    No because 4x2 is still dual channel unless it's on a x79 chipset. 1x8 is best for if you or going to upgrade, but as said is single channel and is pointless to get more ram if it is a gaming build. 2x4, no complaints there, still allows 2 extra slots to upgrade. 4x2, as said is more stress on the mem controller plus you have to get rid of ram to upgrade which means money lost.
