My System Specs

Default z87 workstation?

My computer is doing more and more mathematical modeling and I run out of memory on some calculations with just 8 GB.

How much memory and at what speed is best for mathematical software? I'm guessing somewhere around 1866 and 16 GB?

Faster is always going to be better with RAM.

You can get 2x 8gb sticks these days. In general, populating all 4 RAM slots tends to lead to slower clocks for the RAM and CPU (stresses the MCH).

It really depends on if the software and if it will even benefit.
