    Isn't CL16-18-18-36 actually pretty damn bad? I know the influence is only around 5 percent, but this seems to be getting out of hand recently.

    CL on ddr4 is slightly lower but I thought that was down to architecture changes so it's not overly noticeable.

    It's nice to see they're doing 4x16GB packs to cater for the matx crowd, that's been pretty hard to find unlike 2 and 8 packs lol

    Prices are a bit steep for my pocket at the moment.

    One thing though, (running the risk of exposing my ignorance), why is a "Z170 optimised set" consisting of four modules? If the Z170 is dual channel then surely a 'mere' pair of DIMMs would do? And how is that four way set not also eminently suitable for the X99 (which is quad channel)?

    Interestingly, (to me at least), the X99 specific kit isn't compatible with some boards - like the Asus boards I've been looking at which, for whatever reason, have a stated memory capacity limit of 64GB.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    price increases most likely Personally I'd have said a 4 module pack is meant for x99 due to quad channel but I suppose they're going by memory sockets which is usually 4 on z170.

    Interestingly, (to me at least), the X99 specific kit isn't compatible with some boards - like the Asus boards I've been looking at which, for whatever reason, have a stated memory capacity limit of 64GB.
    following on from above it's likely 'meant' for 8 memory socket atx boards rather than those (matx) with just 4.. yeah for some reason everyone seems to be 'forgetting' about the x99 matx boards

    Speed? X99 can't run memory as quick?

    Most Z170 motherboards have four slots and each pair of slots is dual channel. Isn't that why they are colour coded like in the image below?

    Why sell two DIMMs to people when you can sell four and make more profit?

    I agree that if it was MATX boards then a mem limitation due to form factor seems acceptable, but the ones I've looked at (Sabretooth X99 and X99-Deluxe) are bog standard ATX size. Worse still the Rampage V Extreme specs also say:
    Memory
    8 x DIMM, Max. 64GB, DDR4 3300(O.C.)/3000(O.C.)/2800(O.C.)/2666(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2133 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
    Quad Channel Memory Architecture
    Supports IntelĀ® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)
    * Hyper DIMM support is subject to the physical characteristics of individual CPUs.
    * Refer to www.asus.com for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists).
    And the Rampage claims to be an E-ATX board, so I'm thinking it's not a size issue. Especially as Gigabyte, MSI, Asrock, etc seem to be able to handle up to 128GB.

    Just curious, that's all.

    Availability of 16gb modules was quite limited (we knew they were coming but there weren't any out) when x99 came out so it's possible that they just stuck to 8gb like the ddr3 days (or copy paste lol). Even those that do (asrock x99m's for example) have a compatibility list with limited 16gb module options.
