Is it overall better to be running two 8gig RAM sticks as opposed to four 4gig RAM sticks? The presumption is the fewer sticks would use less power, create less heat, travel less area for the same size memory???

Use less power? Yes. Create less heat? Probably. Travel less? No.

Any appreciable difference in anything? No.

I guess in my case it would help cause my new build will have the Dark Knight II heatsink which will over hang 2 DIMM slots. Getting the same amount of memory using just two slots then would help a lot.

People say LP heatsinks will work with the DKII so..............
