Ripjaws 4 4x8gb in z170 board help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all, could use some help real quick. I have an opportunity to grab some 4x8gb ripjaw 4 for $75.

http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=N82E16820231795

I am building with a sabertooth mark 1 z170. Is there any reason I shouldn't run them 4x8 in a z170?

Why wouldnt you run them all? max out the dimm slots man, go big. no one is telling you you cant, its only 2400mhz.

I just know ripjaw 4s are "optimized" for quad channel so wanted to double check. Already picked em up since it was such a steal and I'm gonna have them in my build. Double the ram for less than retail on the 16gb I was gonna get, couldn't pass that up

The optimized thing just means they are guaranteed to work together full speed with no issues, if you picked up 2 2x8 kits there is a chance they wont work together at their rated speeds or worst case scenario at all, though ive never had this issue it can happen hence most people will say buy the whole kit dont part it as compatibility can be a possible issue. Though i bought my 4 dimms 2 were single sticks and the last 2 were at 2x8 kit, ive no issues, its more a issue once you go past 3000mhz speed wise. hope this helps.
