In our tests, we will be using the new Crucial DDR4 memory, which has a speed of 2133 MHz, and a rating of CL15. We will use eight 16GB sticks of these kits, and that will bring us to 128GB of RAM.

 

We have already taken a look at these memory kits, and you can find our review for those here: Crucial DDR4-2133 DRx4 RDIMM Memory Review - Testing up to 256GB.

The memory setup page describes how different configurations and types of memory used will effect memory speeds. Our tests will use a full load of memory, and that will drop our memory speed down to 1866 MHz.
