Solved Is Triple-channel RAM the same/compatible with Dual-channel? Tags: RAM Dual Channel Compatibility Triple Channel Memory Last response: August 16, 2013 10:16 AM in Memory Share aaron7 August 16, 2013 10:04:52 AM Was hard to come up with a title that said what I was trying to say! I have a first-gen i7 960 system with 24gb of triple-channel G.Skill RAM. I just purchased a 2600k & motherboard which is obviously dual-channel. Can I just use 4 of my 6 current sticks and it'll work fine or is triple-channel RAM actually different somehow?
