    Memory selection for Maximus VIII Extreme, confused

    So I am running the Asus M8E with 6700k, 3 EVGA 1080 GTX FTW ACX 3.0 cards, Noctua NH-D15 air fan setup until i decide to water-cool, I haven't made a decision on the storage as of yet, prob, Samsung 950's.

    But the memory is where I am confused on.

    when reading the QVL list how am I to get the the Max memory 64gb, at the highest speed 3866, or what I am missing here...what is the best memory to install at the stock speed then OC this up to those fast speeds 3333, 3400, 3466, ....up to 3866 etc. Does this mean I order what seems to the be the fastest at 64gb

    64GB (4 x 16GB)) and then OC from there.....

    Or getting Kingston memory HX426C15FBK2/16 .....16GB ( 2x 8GB ) and then over clock this to 3866 or am i missing how this works....
