i7-4930k triple channel memory?

Intel says that i7-4930k cpu got 4 memory channels. Does it support 6x4GB memory on triple channel? I got this ram: Corsair Vengeance PC3-12800 DDR3 1600

    4 memory channels, so memory should be matched pairs.

    Picture of compatible motherboard, not the memory slots and memory kit used.

    oke, then I'm going to buy 2 sticks more of same memory and run it on quad channel. thanks :)
  3. i7-4930k can do quad-channel, triple-channel and dual-channel. But you will have to consult your motherboard's manual to see what specific memory configurations it will support. Some socket-2011 boards only have four memory slots, some have eight. So with your six RAM sticks, you'll have to see. If you really want to use that ram I would suggest buying two more identical sticks and using them all in an eight memory slot motherboard.

    Matched in quads, but I think that's what you meant.
