Trying to find 8x16 compatible memory for this board has been a nightmare.
I saw a set of G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 128GB (8 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 F4-3200C14Q2-128GTZR
It was $899 on ebay with only a few hours left. It seemed like a killer deal, so I went with it.
The memory is on the gigabyte QVL, but is listed as only 4 socket support. I'm just wondering what my chances are of getting this up and running with all 8 installed
I'm not opposed to switching the motherboard if there is one known to work.
Depends on your 1950x imc. Try 2933 first. Use 1usmus's calculator and ask for advice here
You may need a 2950 in the end idk
