Area-51 R5, RAM upgrade to 128GB?

I've been running advanced simulations on my Area-51 R5, some of which take a huge amount of RAM. I've got the Area-51 R5 with Intel Xeon i9-7980XE CPU and (currently) 64GB RAM. Is is it possible to upgrade this to 128GB RAM? Will I have compatibility issues with the motherboard? Will it require 4x32GB format, or would I be able to get away with 8x16GB?

The PC is the Area 51-R5 with two GTX 1080ti's running in SLI. I purchased it this year. 

Thanks

Hi @ArupRSRNY

 

This is the validated RAM for your system:

Therefore, the maximum is 64 GB, you can try more RAM but we can not guarantee functionality.

Let's wait and see if any other user who has already tried can give their input.

Hi @PepeVV,

 

It is not an official RAM so we can't guarantee functionality.

Let's wait to see if maybe another user who has already tried it, can give you more information.
