8x16GB at what speed?

Busy building a X299 RIG and the guys on my thread were helpful yesterday, just wanting to see what everyone is running.
10920X/10940X.

Also, is it true that best throughput on the memory controller is achieved at 6 DIMMs?

Regards
really cannot answer your question without knowing what MB you are using. In general, 4x8GB of samsung B die will run the highest frequency and lowest latency. But, on some 8 slot boards, filling all slots, even running at a lower frequency can yield higher throughput (bandwidth).
6 dimms on a quad channel layout... not good in any 8slot MB

ThrashZone Hi,
Unless you have some applications or work that needs more than 32gb 4x8gb kits are usually way more memory needed and 8gb stick oc pretty well
3600c16 4x8 for myself

Jpmboy Yeah, funny thing is, I gave my nephew a golden 7350K (2c4t)@ 5.4/5.0 Apex IX rig with a 1070Ti, [email protected], and with the 120Hz 1080P monitor hooked to it, he claims it "crushes" anything here at his uncle's house for his favorite games. IDK, gaming rigs are like fitting a prosthetic device.

Hi,
Yeah I only had 5930k and 7900x/ 9940x to game on and preferred 5930k just it's cache at 38 made a lot of difference even on a 1080ti ftw3 opposed to titan Xp
I wasn't counting fps either just fluid gaming.

So 10900k is just flat out wicked different lol
I believe you even were saying your 8700k build was stupid fast gaming so to build off that if I may I would say the same about 10900k
GPU matters but cpu/ cache does too

10900k 539.99 my first real gaming chip since 5930k so I'm enjoying it immensely and a real cache
