Dual Channel RAM vs. Quad Channel RAM

Dual Channel RAM vs. Quad Channel RAM

I just bought a motherboard that says it supports Dual-Channel RAM. The RAM I'm looking at says it's a "Quad-Channel Kit" . Will it work with my motherboard?

"""Quad Channel"" is just a marketing ploy. It's 4 sticks of matched memory, and is the same as buying 2 dual channel kits. If your motherboard supports dual channel, and it can handle the amount and speed of the memory you purchased, you should be fine. We'd need to know your motherboard model to find specifics on what it supports though.

Edit from an anonymous user:

That was an old response. As with all technology, dual channel has advanced to triple channel and...Quad channel."
