    This is NOT the same as a RAMDisk.
    Still bottlecapped by SATA transfer/read/write maximums.

The RoG RAIDR Express is faster than all of those, but has a very high price tag (around that of the 500GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD) for only 240GBs of storage. Basically, the RAIDR express is the fastest out of every SSD out of the box, the 840 EVOs have the best price/performance ratio, the 840 PROs are the fastest SATA SSDs and the Hyper 3Ks are just barely more expensive than the 840 EVOs, and faster by a fairly big margin. Everything else looks good, except that if you are interested in future upgrades I would recommend an 850w PSU. Also, I would recommend buying the 2x8GB Trident X kit as the fewer sticks your system has the less stress it puts on your system.
    He may want to load up on RAM if he's doing what I think he's doing. But yes less sticks the better. 16GB is good for the 2x8

    He says it is for gaming. Not Bitcoin mining if that's your guess. AMD does better in that particular area.

    I thought 4 sticks was better so as to make use of the quad channel that the Formula VI offers? I have been considering the H105 over the H100i.

    The formula vi is dual channel memory, 2x8 GB sticks for 16 GB is the way to go if you are overclocking. Two sticks will put less strain on the cpu's integrated memory controller.

    quad channel memory comes in 4 or 8 perfectly matched sticks.
    dual channel memory comes in 2 or 4 perfectly matched sticks.

    You wouldn't notice any performance difference when gaming. The gpu is what will make the biggest difference in performance with games.

    Actually quad or dual channel is determined by the chipset not the number of sticks you have fitted. The LGA2011 (X79) chipset is currently the only platform that offers quad channel memory.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    Thanks HiVizMam, I thought the chipset on the Formula VI was quad channel, my mistake. I didnt look close enough when i was reading the specs on that motherboard. I 've been reading so much material lately that my head is swimming. I have a lot of catching up to do. So much has changed since the last time a built a computer.
