Question about Triple Channel Memory (X58 mobos) and 4 sticks DDR3 RAM

My motherboard says that to be able to use Triple Channel memory I should have 3 sticks of DDR3 RAM, but what happens if I use 4 sticks instead?

The memory I bought only comes in kits of 2 sticks, so to get at least 3 I have to buy 2 sets of 2.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Oh hey werner I got the mems from my last thread. I am using 2 sticks at the moment but will have plans to buy 2 more for 4 sticks (wanna go with the Triple Channel route but since theres no kits of three sticks of this kind of mem, I guess it have to do + I dont see any need for more than 8gb of RAM atm)

    Here's my mems and overclocked ofc...still need to overlock more but I am not 100% knowledgeable on how to overclock and about the QPI/Mem voltages yet.
