I have a Dual-Channel memory Corsair CMX 8GB (2x4GB) and my motherboard ASUS P6X58D-E is triple channel, can I use them on that motherboard?

As long as the memory type is correct, (ddr3 in a ddr3 board) yes.

it simply won't operate in triple channel mode, losing some performance. it won't be anything major though.

I think you can use them so long as the voltage is 1.65v or less. They should operate in dual channel mode. Dual channel mode will not impact your real application performance at all. Which slots you put them in is important, check your motherboard manual.
