Hello, ultra newby 1st post here, I am stumbling toward a new system build and I have an elementary memory question. My MB has 8 slots and I am intending to install 64gb of ddr4 2666mhz.

In what configuration should I purchase this (8) 8gbs (4) 16gbs ???? Tell me please, thanks.

4 modules of 16GB would be easier to cool and easier for the Internal Memory Controller to manage than 8x8GB. Some people prefer the look of a full deck of 8 and it is not prohibitively difficult, but if you are playing percentages the 4x16 should be easier to overclock.

Why would you need 64gb of memory? 16 Is very good 32 is exaggeration, now imagine what 64gb are. Unless you are building a server, you will not need that much if memory, i would suggest that you invest your money somewhere else although i understand the trill of watching your system info and admiring those monsterus amount of 64gb of memory!
