I'm in the process of building a new PC (I've only acquired an RTX 3090 so far) and I'm trying to find the very best Motherboard and Memory configuration for an AMD Ryzen 5950X CPU. I'm leaning towards the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero or Formula so far. I'm also trying to find the fastest Memory configuration for whichever one is chosen. I've been leaning towards some G.Skill memory, but there are many options. After looking at a few reviews as well, I've seen some Quad Memory configurations may work better with these new Ryzen CPU's so I'm hoping a 4x16GB Config or similar will be optimal. Any suggestions or shared knowledge would be greatly appreciated here.

Thanks!

Welp no feedback, so I went with a Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero and 2x Kits of G.Skill Trident Z Royal 32GB (2x16gb) DDR4 4266 (PC4 34100) Memory F4-4266C17D-32GTRSB (64GB Combined). We'll see how this works out and I'll post more here once I have this thing built.
