    Help with some RAm DDR4

    Ok so I shopped at Scan and I have a Asus pro and 6700 K now all I need is DDR4 for about £80 and no more. I see this board will seat up to 64gig whatever I will be using 16gig, which is the better way to go 4x4 or 2x8 not to worried about brand but the motherboard is mainly white in colour not to bothered as Black ok too.

    2x8 should be better, so you can add more in the future.


    3000 MHZ - https://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb...blackbmo-offer £74.59

    2800 MHZ - https://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb...16-18-18-36-xm £73.40

    2666 MHZ https://www.scan.co.uk/products/bmo-dual-2666 £69.98

    2400 MHZ https://www.scan.co.uk/products/bmo-offer-2400 £59.99

    if you are not bothered about speed or overclocking, the 2400 will be fine. otherwise I would get the 3000 set. its £5 more than the 2666 but its easier to run it at slower speeds than at faster ,

    all the linked sets are Black in colour

    Hi Raza,

    I'm currently running a Z170 setup, with the i5 6600K (Wasn't feeling flush enough for the 6700K )

    Stevie Lee has linked to the RAM I have, which is exactly what I would've recommended. The Motherboard picked up the XMP on the RAM no problem at all and I'm getting excellent results in all memory benchmarks.
    3000MHz seems to be about the "sweet spot" at the moment, in terms of price and performance. Once you go above 3000MHz the price creeps up fairly quickly.

    They also do these sets in red and blue. (I've gone for the red.)

    The 4 module kits are for the high end platforms that have four memory channels. The 6700k on the mainstream platform only has two, so 2x8GB is the more sensible purchase as you won't see any advantage from four sticks and it gives you the space to use them for upgrades in future.
