Question Best configuration of 16 Gb? 8Gb*2 stick or 4Gb*4 stick

My PC - Lenovo ThinkCentre_M710_SFF / Core i7-7700.
I want to upgrade RAM to 16Gb.
What set will be best in performance? 2 sticks of 8Gb or 4 sticks of 4Gb?
Memory has the same frequency and latency (DDR4-2666 CL 13)
From my PC specification
64GB max, UDIMM, DDR4-2400, four 288-pin DIMM sockets, non-ECC, dual-channel capable

It is a dual channel memory system and presumably without any kind of topology used by some newer boards. 2x8 should be easier to manage than 4x4, although it is unlikely to matter at 2666. The 2x8 has more physical space around it and likely will run slightly cooler.
