Like some others have stated the 2x2 would be more beneficial because of the dual channel capabilities and also reliability.. If one of the 2x2 sticks goes bad.. you can still operate, but if your 1 4g stick goes bad you are gonna wanna f yourself in the a. Kindly put

Lol yeah that would suck. I think I'm gonna get the reapers because of the heat pipes.. I have an antec 900 so the air circulates well and it looks cool with the heatpipes lol. I'll try running 4-4-4-12 @ 1066 with the reapers and see what happens. The voltage is at 2.1 already which is pretty high, but maybe it'll run tighter timings on that voltage. Who knows
