This seems to be as good a place to ask this as any, so here it goes.
I'm in the market for a 3930k, that I'm hoping to push to 5GHz. For this I will be using Rampage 4 Extreme.
I have two questions regarding memory:
1. I want 32GB (8x4GB), but in the past, populating all of my DIMMs has hindered my overclocking capability. Is this still the case with LGA2011 processors?
2. Does frequency and latency of RAM have an impact on the frequency overclocking ceiling? Right now with the hardware listed I have paired two 16GB (4x4GB) sets of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600, with latency of 9-9-9-24, Will this RAM take me where I want to go? Does it even matter, or is it merely along for the ride?
In the past it's paid of to go with higher quality RAM for my overclocking needs (PC2 1066 OCZ Reapers took my Q9550 to 4.2Ghz), and this is what my gut is telling me, but on the other hand, low latency, or high frequency (or God forbid, both) DDR3 RAM is ridiculously expensive.
