    Check out the Memory Qualified Vendor List here.

    With your setup being an Intel system, you should not have major issues with any of the following RAM though:

    3800(O.C.)/3733(O.C.)/3600(O.C.)/3500(O.C.)/3466(O.C.)/3400(O.C.)/3333(O.C.)/3300(O.C.)/3200(O.C.)/3000(O.C.)/2800(O.C.)/2666(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2133 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
    I would recommend G Skill.

    thank for reaching, after using 3200mhz do i need to tweak or leave the settings itself? And in the future can i do quad *channels of 16gb?*

    You will need to set the XMP Profile settings for the ram to run at the advertised speeds (3200mhz) in the bios yes.

    Otherwise the ram will run at JEDEC default settings.

    Not sure what you mean by quad channel of 16GB's?

    According to your motherboards specs:

    4 x DIMM, Max. 64GB, DDR4 3800(O.C.)/3733(O.C.)/3600(O.C.)/3500(O.C.)/3466(O.C.)/3400(O.C.)/3333(O.C.)/3300(O.C.)/3200(O.C.)/3000(O.C.)/2800(O.C.)/2666(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2133 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
    Dual Channel Memory Architecture
    Supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)
    * Hyper DIMM support is subject to the physical characteristics of individual CPUs.
    So if I understand your query correctly, you can run 4x 16GB DIMMS.

    However, depending on your usage, do you really need 64GB?

    If only gaming, then 16GB is enough for now.
