16GB is WAY MORE THAN ENOUGH. Seriously. Unless you have 100s of tabs open in 2 chromium based browsers and something odd in the background 16GB is still way more than enough, i know, i have it. I have not gone even over 40% in games while having 2 chrome browsers open with 20+ tabs

No, that's BS. It's to do with the IMC, you can't OC the memory as well on 4 modules if it's dual channel (z87) as you did with 2 modules. Also referred to as 1DPC or 2DPC
With X79 it's natively 4 modules you put in 4 modules but it's still 1DPC

The 4 vs. 2 modules discussion does not apply to X79 and Socket 2011. The X79 is Intel's "pro" socket and will handle 8 DIMMS with no problem, let alone 4 DIMMS.

p.s. The 4770k WON'T fit in Socket 2011. You need a i7-3930K, 3820, or one of the new Haswell 4930K or 4820K, etc.
