Can I dual channel 8gb by 2 sets of 4gb kits?

I'm not quite sure if this would work, but if I purchased 2 sets of 4gb kits (each kit has 2gb by 2), and install in all 4 slots - can I successfully achieve an 8gb system?

Yes, four sticks of 2GB RAM would equal to 8GB dual channel.

If I wanted to still use the dual channel mode, but only wanted to bump up to 6gb of ram..

Can I use 4gb on dimm1+3, then use a 2gb set on dimm2+4? Or will I run into complications in terms of cas latency, voltage etc?
