  1. That memory what you choosed is quad channel. You need dual channel memory and if you need 16GB RAM buy 2 X 8GB and you can upgrade in the future to 32GB RAM. You need something like this CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233246
    Your CPU will not bottleneck the GPU'S.

    I saw it advertised with 4 sticks mem in it.
    The I haven't read on it cos I thought it was ok.

    It's dual memory, just 2xdual channel for the lga2011 board

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Only 2 dim slots per channel?
    2 channels on the board?

    Lame!
    I am not rly after 16gb. But it looked like it was the way to go.
