For anyone wondering how much difference there is between dual and quad channel memory on the RIVE I just did some testing. I was curious to see if running some fast mem in dual channel may exceed quad.

5Ghz 16GB quad channel 6m59.656s
5Ghz 16GB dual channel 7m05.319s

With close to a 6s difference you would have to have a very poor quad kit to exceed perf in dual channel. Not a huge difference for a 24/7 system but for benching 6s is quite a bit.
