    Most IMC(internal memory controller) can run 2666mhz ddr4. When you get to 3000/3200 mhz it gets a lil sketchy. Each cpu is over clocking ram after 2100mhz. Theres no guarantee that it will work as soon as you pop it in. Some tweeking may be needed. My personal computer is running gskill 3200, but i had to bump system agent voltage a tiny bit. But before i had this model i had a set of geil 3400 which wouldnt run no matter what i did. My IMC couldnt handle it. But Asus has released a list of QVL for ram at higher xmp settings. Performance wise 2666 and 3000 is negligible. You wont see any performance gains.

    Here is the QVL link http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...me/R5E_QVL.pdf

    This is good RAM and not expensive and QVL...
    ASUS QVL list say they are tested even in all slots, that's 64GB... Probably two kits.

    F4-3000C15Q2-32GRK

    CORSAIR have Dominator Platinum 2800

    CMD32GX4M4A2800C16 32GB
    CMD64GX4M8A2800C16 64GB

    If you want gambling GSkill Trident Z work on 14-14-14 latency
    F4-3000C14Q-32GTZ

    First you need to decide what you want
    2800MHz 1.200V
    3000MHz 1.350V

    Stick with a single kit of the capacity that you want. Don't combine memory kits.

    So double F4-3000C15Q-16GRR kit, also if they're the same memory kit, it's an error?

    Even if they are identical kits they can present problems. Where are you shopping for your memory kit? Does the store have a website?
