AM3 Dual Channel + another dimm?

Can I run dual channel with these

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148339

+ have this not in dual channel without interrupting the dual channel?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148293&cm_re=crucial_ddr3-_-20-148-293-_-Product

They all have the same CL, timings and voltage.

So dual channel + the extra dimm will it work?

Or dual channel + the extra dimm + another extra dimm?

  1. Dual Channel is not always the same on every board. Some boards will allow you to have a dual channel and single channel active at the same time. If your mobo allows it, you can run the pair in dc mode, while the single module will run in sc mode. If you opt for the dc modules plus 2 additional modules, you might as well just go for dual channel for both pairs.

    Start with your mobo manual. If you don't have a copy to read in hand, you can certainly find one online from the ASUS website. Generally everything you need to know about RAM configuration (except for overclocking) can be found in your mobo manual.
