What motherboard are we talking about?  And "quad channel"?

does that help

 

Quite a bit of Corsair and G.Skill's 32GB kits have been tested on the MSi X99 Pro Carbon, so you should not have much issues compatibility wise.

 Plus, X99 is already quite mature, and all -- if not most -- of the quirks have been solved, and should be very stable by now.

 

DDR4-2400 should have absolutely no issues; if you were talking about something like DDR4-3600+, then that would be different.

 

Here are a few kits you can look into, so you can get a feel (I'm specifically picking ones listed on the MSi's memory support list)


AMD 990FX Rig (BEING converted to X99 -- i7-6800K, ASUS X99 Deluxe II, etc)

  • i7-6800K <--> FX-8350 @ 4.8 / 4.9 GHz (given up on the 5.0 / 5.1 GHz attempt)
  • ASUS X99 Deluxe II <--> ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula 990FX
  • 16 GB DDR4 G.Skill Trident Z 3000 MHz <--> 2 GB (4 GB X 3) G.Skill RipJawsX DDR3 @ 1866 MHz
  • Sapphire Vapor-X HD 7970 + Sapphire Dual-X HD 7970 in Crossfire  Sapphire NITRO R9-Fury in Crossfire
  • CM Hyper 212 EVO (temporary) <--> Thermaltake Frio w/ Cooler Master JetFlo's in push-pull
  • SanDisk 480 GB SSD <--> Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD + Kingston V300 120GB SSD + WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD
  • EVGA SuperNOVA 850W P2 <--> Corsair TX850 (ver.1)
  • Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass Edition <--> Cooler Master HAF 932
  • Some Keyboard + Mice <--> Logitech G9x + Corsair K70 (red LED, anodized black, cherry MX Brown)

Intel Z97 Rig

  • Intel i5-4690K @ 4.6 GHz  4.8 GHz (still tweaking it)
  • ASUS ROG Maximus VII Hero Z97
  • Sapphire Vapor-X HD 7950
  • 20 GB (8GB X 2 + 4GB X 1) Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz
  • Corsair A50 air cooler  *NEW* NZXT X61
  • Kingston V300 120GB SSD [non-gimped version] + SanDisk Ultra II 240GB SSD + WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD
  • Antec New TruePower 550W
