    128GB of RAM for the ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME and 5950X, CL18 @ 4000Mhz?

    I'm looking for a fast kit of 4x32 GB RAM sticks, and I have now spent the last two days reading about different options, limitations and what people have experienced with their kits.
    Still, I have not been able to clearly verify what I should buy to get a stable, yet fast RAM-kit into my new system build (in the title).

    Main candidates seems to be:
    G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB - F4-3600C16Q-128GTZN
    G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB - F4-4000C18Q-128GTZR
    G.Skill Trident Z Royal Gold DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB - F4-3600C16Q-128GTRG (or the silver version, whats the difference?)

    And some say that this Corsair kit is better:
    128GB Vengeance RGB RT DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB CMN128GX4M4Z3600C18

    Is there just me or is it very unclear what will work best?
    Please help me sort these things out .

    My current system is a i9-9900K on a GigaByte Designare Z390 board with two kits of Corsair Vengeance LPX Black DDR4 3600MHz 2x32GB - CMK64GX4M2D3600C18
    I run FEM-simulations, some Solidworks CAD and Photoshop.
    Main reason to the needed amount of RAM is that I regularly work with a set of multilayered tiff-files in Photoshop that is 86k x 43k. For the new system I have bought a set of 2TB 980 Pro's to use in four of the M.2 connectors, and one of these will l be dedicated to PS swap, one for windows and PS, and one for the files I currently work with.
    My budget hindered me to go for a TreadRipper system, but this 5950X-path haven't been cheap either, "just" the RAM and eventually upgraded water-loops missing now

    4 sticks of RAM @ 4000 is nearly impossible with daisy chain motherboard and AMD Ryzen

    The Kingston HyperX HX436C18FB3K4/128 set is QVL approved for Dark Hero. Should be a chance it'll work with the Extreme as well.

    Just to report back;
    This weekend I have finally been installing the mobo and i went for this kit: G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4 3600MHz 4x32GB - F4-3600C16Q-128GTZN
    Worked perfect! I just had to activate DOCP as said here.

    Also installed a EK monoblock, and I let one radiator sit on each sides of the graphics and CPU in the loop.
    Super quiet and a real workhorse and gamestation!
