As you can see only 1 RAM supports 1,2 and 4DIMM dual-channel, so does this meen for the rest i would need 4x2gb (4sticks) for dual channel?!

This is anoying me because i ALWAYS thought 2 stick of same ram in the same slots (blue/black) = DUAL CHANNEL?

Can anyone please help me on what ram to get for this setup in dual channel 4GB (2x2GB) please!

Thank you,.

None of those the only one with a little decent times is the G.Skill 8GB kit and is a waste of money since u only need 8GB for use many adobe applications at the same time.

Do u want something better? Go with this G.Skill 4GB (2x2GB) 1600 that are much better with fewer price.

Yeah I know aren't in the QVL but that list is only a guide and doesn't mean that the mobo only works with the RAM in the list more if u can see the list u can find that not all the RAM works at the same specs that the manufacturer says.
