16 GB computer memory

I am thinking about building a computer based on the MSI Big Bang X Power II Intel X79 2011 Motherboard
which has 8 dimm memory slots and claims it can handle max memory of 128 GB. Here is my problem.
As I search for memory I either find memory that looks like it would be incompatible or come in no larger than 8 GB sticks. Search engines on crucial and others take my 128 GB query and alter it showing me 128 MB memory.
To be clear. To get 128 GB RAM spread across 8 dimms each one will have to hold 16 GB. So a 16 GB that provides that via 2x8 or 4x4 are useless. I need to find 8x16.
What is the fastest, most reliable memory that comes in single 16 GB dimm sticks compatible with listed MSI Big Bang X Power II Intel X79 2011 Motherboard?
And perhaps even more important how can I get to the appropriate store or web site to actually make that purchase and get it in my greedy little hands?
