Use what the board requires. If you have 2 or 4 slots, use 2 or 4 sticks of ram; Only 1366 boards need the ram in threes.

Most 3x2 gb kits are for 1366 boards. Speaking of details, why don't you post your system specs.

If you've already got the ram and it works in three slots, then I would leave it alone. The extra ram will run faster even if it's not in dual channel mode. Your board manual will tell you which 3 slots are the best to use.

No. not at all. It either works or doesn't. Don't think you have to rma the board; leave it alone or remove one of the sticks. You can also add another single 2 gb stick if you can match it to the other three.
