this might be a stupid questions but i just want to make sure... will triple channel memory work work on a dual channel motherboard?
from what i gather the RAM is totally the same but triple channel memory is sold in multiples of 3

Yes the memory chips are the same. The difference is in the memory controller on the motherboard, not the chips. The triple channel will work on the dual channel motherboard - of course you will want to install 2 or 4 rather than 3 if the motherboard supports dual channel memory.
ok thanks for the info i thought that was the case but i just wanted to make sure.
if i install 3 mem sticks in dual channel will that kill all benefits of dual channel?
