    i put 2x8 & 2x4 ddr4 into a new 1151 build that was being taken to the limit using a illustrator tool, taking the 2x4 back out didnt seem to make it any worse
    & the 2x8 should be running dual channel on its own, im pretty sure

    Yea it is running dual channel. Spose I could run a few benchmarks. The fx is 8 core so who knows.
