What about overclocking?
ASUS also provided us with a benchmark results from a Crosshair V Formula-Z at CL9 and a Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 at CL10:
How to best configure your setup?
If you choose to install two DIMMs, then you can use either the brown or the beige slots. Never the less you should prefer channel A (brown). The reason is really simple. Because of shorter signal travel distance you get lower latencies and therefore higher performance.
If you have four DIMMs you want to install, it is quite obvious that you'll have to populate Channel A (brown) and Channel B (beige). You should make sure that you're using two dual channel memory kits and that you place those kits in the sockets with the same color.
Another thing we have to mention when it comes to memory overclocking is, that is can well be that the processor is the bottleneck in the system. Therefore it can be that you wont be able to reach the frequencies we mentioned here. On the other hand we can tell you that todays world record for memory frequencies, held by our overclocker Chrisitan Ney, is at almost 4 GHz.
