    i7 6800k dual channel vs quad channel ram.

    I've tried to find an answer myself, but I still don't really know. Since the I7 6800K is made to be use with quad channel ram. How much of a performance difference would it make if I use 2x8gb vs 4x8 gb. Would I lose a lot of potential if I only use 2x8gb? This is mainly for gaming purpose.
