Default X299 Asus ROG Rampage Extreme and i9-7900x > which DDR4 Ram?

Dear all

I need your help - as Im a little bit lost.

I ordered an i9-7900x wit an Asus ROG x299 Rampage Extreme mainboard allowing DDR4 up to 4200+ and more.

So what I want is G.Skill RGB RAM and 32GB.

As this is a quad channel board i will need to go for 4x8GB.

Now my question: What would you recommend? Your precious help is welcome.

Thirst I wanted to buy this Dual-Channel kit twice time to get 32GB:

G. Skill RGB: 2x8GB 4266 with CL19-19-19-39

Couple of days I have seen a new kit coming out in december for quad channel (but I need them now):

G.Skill RGB: 4x8GB 4200 with CL19-23-23-43-43

Whats the difference? Are this guaranteed timings for quad channel? So if I would go with twice dual-channel now - I would need to optimize timings?

Alternatively I could go with quad channel kits:

G.Skill RGB: 4x8GB 3600 CL16-16-16-32


G.Skill RGB: 4x8GB 3866 CL18-19-19-39

Thx for your feedbacks.

Best, Jedimaster

3600 kit uses the best chips on the market, so that may be what you want

I know I am a little late but I have the Trident Z CL16 kit and I can confirm it is a great kit. I have a Asus Rampage VI Apex with a i9-7980XE. See memory OC below.
