    G.SKILL TridentZ Series 16GB (2 x 8G 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3400 (PC4 27200) Intel Z170 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-3400C16D-16GTZ - Newegg.com

    That is a nice kit for sure. I agree with all the comments that 64 is simply more than is needed for what Aryan51 proposes to do, but then his whole machine is pretty much overkill given his stated workload. I'd say RAM manufacturers generally agree with the points made here too. When I did a casual market survey, I could certainly find links like Ciarlatano posted, and the odd review stating that ADATA was introducing this, and Crucial that, and G.Skill the other, but the only manufacturer with 2666 DDR4 C14/15/16 actually available at any of the vendors on PCPartpicker (a limited subset to be sure) was Corsair. Extending the frequency range out to 4000, and reducing the DIMM Size to 2x16GB and 4x16GB (there are no 1x16G left me with 4 DIMMS, 3 from Crucial and 1 from GeiL which wasn't available. Choose Memory - PCPartPicker

    Of course, today is a new day, and G.Skill appears to have flooded the market (well, Newegg anyway) with availability!

    I'd personally be sorely tempted by: G.SKILL TridentZ Series 32GB (2 x 16G 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Intel Z170 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-3000C15D-32GTZ - Newegg.com for just $299.

    To be fair, I'm not entirely a believer that I can't use 64GB of RAM, but I lived through the days of 640kb and DOS Extenders, so to me, More (RAM) is always better. Having said that, actually dropping the cash on 64GB of 3GHz C15/C16 RAM is probably never going to happen in my house because there's always some OTHER gadget to buy...LOL

    That Trident-Z kit is the one that I want, but I already have the HyperX Savage 64GB DDR4 Kit.
