    I need forum recommendations on good reliable memory sticks, 4x4 GB or 8x2 GB (don't sure which is better). Mostly PC will be using for games and some audio recording.
    Don't know which clock 1866 or 2400 (O.C.) for motherboard will be better.
    Can somebody share his experience with me?

    Thank you!

    CPU is this
    The number of controllers: 1
    Memory channels: 4
    Supported memory: DDR3-1066, DDR3-1333, *DDR3-1600

    For Memory compatibility is the SABERTOOTH X79 Memory QVL list here

    4x4 is better if you overclock because you can only go as far as your slowest stick. The sandy bridge e cpus don't have amazing memory controllers so you're best of with a 2133mhz kit and overclocking it. As for brands I recommend G.skill ram.

    I run some Kingston Hyper X Beast 2133Mhz ram which serve me well, though I dont use my rig for anything back braking so to speak - Encoding a 48GB BR rip in 1080P still takes less than an hour through handbrake.
