Can I have two dimms in dual channel and one more single dimm?

I've got an Asus M4A88TD-V mobo and a 2x2gb DDR3 1600 Ram kit for it. One of the dimms didn't work. Because I'm impatient I ordered another of the same kit to use while I RMA the bad one.

Now I have two dimms installed in the two blue slots. I have one extra good dimm while I RMA the bad one. Can I add the third for 6gb total, with that one in single channel mode?

    Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    Yeah u can install 6GB but that 6GB only can run in single channel since the memory controller only can run at one mode.
