New build thoughts- Dual channel or Quad compatible?

Fast facts: I want a motherboard with dual channel compatibility but doesn't display quad compatibility. Will it support quad channel ram kits?

    Yes but it will run them in dual channel (16GB in each of the two channels as opposed to 8GB in each of the four channels). I doubt you would notice the difference unless you're using AMD integrated graphics.

    Okay thank you. I needed to know, could save myself a few dollars for that. I'm going to supe it up with an FX8350 and 7970 GHz Edition so, not much of a difference. Thank you. :)
