Tried a 2990wx it was horrible, now want to try a W-3175X

I was working on a new mega build and thought I would give the 2990wx a try. I currently have a 7980XE and the 2990wx ran far worse than my current intel did. Yes the AMD did well in benchmarks, at least cinebench r20 but it ran just horrible when I tried real world applications. I am not talking single games either.

When I looked at it the W-3175X plus MB is only about 2.7k more than the AMD 32core build anyway.

What I am trying to find out is what memory I should get for the ROG Dominus Extreme. I know it supports six channel, I think 6 x 16 GB for 96GB of ram would be enough. I might do the full 12 but not sure yet.
