Hyperthreading and dual-channel ram are principally two different
things, so would normally work independant of each other.
It appears to be a bit critical the use of this kind of high
performance ram, many manufacturers of motherboards recommend certain
modules which should work. It is however not absolutely necessary to
use paired modules; it maybe worth the try much cheaper ones.
