Need Help for x58 RAM channels

Here's the scoop,

I have an x58 setup and I only have 1x4GB DDR3 1600 stick on ram for now.
I'll start with the single stick for now, will I run into any issues when I stick the extra 2 sticks (triple channel) later? is there any BIOS settings I need to worry about?

Also it's my first build so give any info you can think of.

Thanks in advance, and I'll post the build when I am all done.

Just be sure the new sticks you get match the voltage, latencies, and speed (MHz) of the stick you already have. If you can find the twin set for the one stick you already have, you should be good.

Perfect, I figured it would be as simple as that, and I am just going to buy 2 more of the identical RAM.

Thanks treefrog
