Ddr3 memory advice needed

Hello,
i am buying two CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 corsair ddr3 1600 4gb, in single, they are not a kit, but both same memory, will they work in dual channel mode with no problem ?
everyone says its better to buy a kit, but i got a good deal on this model and there is no kit available.
my system is i5 760 with gigabyte p55-us3l, power supply 550w huntkey

  1. Yes,they should work fine in dual channel mode.
  2. this is the answer i got from corsair:
    "They will work fine in your system; however, they may not work in dual channel mode. Dual channel requires identical RAM modules (same part# and version). Modules purchased separately may not have the same version# and they aren't tested 2-up."

    what do you think ?!
  3. I'd recommend getting a kit. It's the only way to be sure.
