Now the main question I have for the more experienced users here is what is better for gaming performance 4Gb 2133/ 7 CAS or 16Gb 1866/ 9 CAS. Specifically the two products I am talking about are http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231454 and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231456
I do no care for answers like "just go with this it's cheaper" type awnsers. I have heard that adding more that two Dimms stresses the memory controller and it is then unable to achieve the higher clocks with lower latancy. But I am not an expert on the subject so I would like to get another persons opinion. The RAM is the last main component I need for this build. Benchmarks or articles would be much appreciated.
