Hello pepz:D  SORRY since this is not on the right forum..

Is Quad channel memory channel kit intended for single motherboard? I would like to purchase in new egg the quad channel kit for it is much lesser
which is;
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
times X2 $177.98

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

There is no technical difference between dual channel kits and quad channel kits. The DIMMs are all funcitonally identical. Quad channel kits merely have parts that have been tested to work in quad channel configurations at their rated specifications.

I have two quad channel kits (two kits of four DIMMs each) installed in my PC for a total of 8 DIMMs. I could have just as easily gone with four dual channel kits (four kits of two DIMMs each).

It's purely a quality assurance measure, nothing more.

I bought mine from NCIX. If you're buying in volume, consider contacting Kingston directly

EDIT: If you want to use more than 2 DIMMs per channel you must use RDIMMs rather than UDIMMs.
