from what I understood so far, it's the mobo that decides if there's triple channel or dual channel.

with RAM memory it just means you have a kit of 2 or 3 same sticks.

My question is:

if I buy 3 triple channel kits (9x 2gb in total) and use 4 sticks in one dual channel board and other 4 in another dual channel board, would they be running fine? ( i will sell the remaining 1 stick) or should I just buy kit with even number of sticks to be on safe side?

it's these 2 kits:

this is 8GB (4x2GB), i'd buy 2 kits

this is 6GB (3x2GB), i'd buy 3 kits and sell 1 stick afterwards

PS: i know one is 1600 and one 1333.

The memory distribution will be 4x2GB in P5Q3 and 4x2GB in P5P43TD/USB3.

what do you recommend?

thanks for advice

If you are saving money this way I do not see a problem, most likely the ram will run fine!
