using Trident Z on X99.F4-3200C14Q-32GTZR
EDIT: Ordered a kit, let's see how this goes
I don't think you'll have an issue. It's a 4 stick kit and you'll be populating 4 dimm slots which means it 'should' be running quad. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm currently using F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR without any problems and was able to use the XMP settings on my 6900k and booted straight to windows, first try no issues. I checked CPUZ and it was in Quad config as well. I haven't run any stability tests (RL is hectic) but I plan to this weekend. From memory, BIOS voltages were 1.25v @ 4.0ghz (auto setting) across all eight cores and RAM was at 1.35v. CIO & SA were 1.05 and .998(?) respectively (don't recall off top of my head). Definitely have some tweaking to do on voltages as AUTO is not very flattering but I haven't had time. The system is currently running stock non XMP settings right now until I've got a couple free hours.
As far as the RGB effect, I had the kit in a 7700k/ASUS IX Code build and used AURA to set the colors I wanted and when I plugged them into my X99 build, the setting stuck transferred over.
As far as the 3600mhz and X99 goes, I reached out to g.skill and this was their response when I asked about compatibility etc:
"You are pretty lucky. That is the best memory kit for that motherboard and CPU, and you got it to run at full speed without any additional tweaking."
I'm sure you will be happy either way. Good luck and let us know how it works out. I'm really impressed with g.skill's kits.Edited by GXTCHA - 4/12/17 at 7:55am
