Your motherboard manual (page 2-12) recommends 1 stick, 2 sticks, or 4 sticks of RAM.
Connect 2 sticks to slots A2 & B2. Buy another stick when you can so you can have 8GB.

Yeah, I looked at the QVL. Doesn't make sense to allow 3 sticks and not show you how to install it.

Connect the 3rd stick to slot A1 and see if your pc boots normally.

Yes. You get the full benefits of Dual Channel Memory with 2 sticks or 4 sticks.
