2x4GB is plenty for most people's needs. If all you do is flight sim, you're better off with 8GB of fast RAM than 16GB of comparitively slower RAM as FS simply isn't going to use that much RAM.

Thanx guys. I enjoy making fsx videos so use video editing and music arrangement software. Is that valid reason for more ram and win. 7 pro. Filling 2 or 4 memory slots is more of a wallet issue than proformance thing, if total amount of memory same? If install 2400 proformance ram do i have to tweak bio's to get that speed?

It really shouldn't be an issue, but you could find out by monitoring your RAM usage during that task to see if all your RAM is used up, if it is, then go ahead and get more RAM.

No. - All you will need to do is select XMP profile for your memory and you are set!

-Just 'catching-up- on OP question to ask.....

 

Does this work with i2700K? (I have one seating in its sealed box ened to buy the rest of components). I thought the limit was 1333 MHZ.

To go above 1333, does it require MOBO and RAM combination to support XMP profile?

ASUS P8Z77-V LE supports (XMP) θπτο 2400. Should I buy XMP Equiped memory ?

Thanks for the answer.

If iam not wrong , xmp for 2700k is 2133 but no problem to overclock if the mem controller is good.

If a not remember wrong a run my 2800 mems at 2255mhz with tight timings with the 2700k
