If you go with the i7-3900 series (LGA2011), it will give you 3 Channels DDR (or 6 DIMM slots). You could start with single rank 4GB, one per slot which give you 24GB.

or dual rank 8GB which give you 48GB.

You can find 16GB DIMM but they come in as quad rank single channel. You cannot populate all 6 slots with 16GB. It won't work. If it does, the speed will go down greatly.

I see, thank you very much for telling me this, then i have to think to go with 24GB then.
