So basically, 2 sticks over 4 sticks would be better as it offers less stress and may result in a higher OC for the system and better stability. But I can have 4 x 8gb sticks and they technically could preform the same as 2x16gb in stock environments.
Is there a huge draw back to just putting in 1x16gb for now and upgrading to a second when I get the money?
