    This is a good summary https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...atoes-overview

    Sure there is always someone who gets lucky and ends up with a CPU with a memory controller built like a brick out house...but that is not a gamble I'd make myself

    I would recommend that, yes.

    However I would ask if you have tested the 5960X with some RAM of that frequency before.

    There are quite a few Haswell E CPUs that have less than spectacular memory controllers.

    The more RAM you add and the higher frequency the more difficulty you might face in getting it to run at reasonable voltage.
    3200MHz is in fact overclocking the RAM. 2133 is the guaranteed frequency...

    64GB you might be better off looking at 2400MHz for stability...

    Maybe buy from somewhere with an easy return policy just in case 64GB 3200 doesn't pan out.

    same in case the XMP profile does not work for me in 3200mhz you could manually set the parameters in another lower frequency, I can assure you the support of G-Skill, because if I buy a kit 2133- 2400 - 2666, I could not upload Frequently when installing a more modern CPU.

    in the future I would like to upload to 128Gb without discarding this kit, but if you tell me you do not think it is possible to join two identical kits, I would discard this option I have to go for the 8X8.

My response to OP was based on his desire to have a stable rig; I'm sure you would agree that overclocking reduces stability. I've personally seen a 5960K drive two DDR4 3000 4X16 kits for a total of 128Gb of RAM on an ASUS board at XMP settings. Still going strong 1 year later...
    I think I do not even know what to choose hahahaha, I want a stable platform that does not take me blue screen, but I can do some OC to increase performance because 3D programs such as Zbrush pulls a lot of ram having a lot of polygons, between faster is the ram faster processing the data and I released ram, so I wanted a ram with a latency a little low but I had the option to do OC and it would be nice if I could upgrade to 128 GB later

    Yeah that is true...you can always downclock.

    Unfortunately yes, if you upgrade to 128GB you would be better buy a new quad channel 128GB kit. and sell the 64GB kit...this is where buying a good quality G.Skill kit pays off...the resale value is good.

    Ok then I will go for the 8X8, since the only advantage I saw in the 4x16 was that maybe I could expand to 128gb in the future, but discarding that idea would be better option for performance OC 8X8.

    thank you very much to all for helping me!
