    Recommended memory for Intel Core i7 3820 (LGA2011)

      I am about to build a new machine. I want to use Intel Core i7 3820 (LGA2011) in Asus P9X79 DELUXE. The machine needs to have 64GB of RAM. I was about to buy 64GBs of 8x8GB 1600Mhz DDR3 but then I read this post: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Dominator-1600MHz-240-Pin-CMP32GX3M4X1600C10/product-reviews/B006E05YYC/ref=cm_cr_dp_qt_hist_three?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addThreeStar&showViewpoints=0

       

      Which basically states that this setup won't work because x79 chipset / LGA2011 is unstable with more than 4 DIMMs at 1600Mhz. Would you agree with that assessment? Should I go with 8x8GB 1333Mhz or 1600Mhz? Thanks.
