Duel and Tri-Channel RAM configurations


A question that was raised when I was casually browsing my MOBO manual recently (cool, I know).

My mobo has in its QVL (qualified vendors lists) for RAM a number of tri-channel setups (3 sticks of RAM equalling 6GB) but I do not understand how it does so when it only supports dual channel RAM. I have four slots labelled as A1, A2, B1 and B2.

I assume that upon buying a tri-channel kit, the mobo would simply assign two of the DIMMs to dual channel, plus a single channel module in there as well?

Please enlighten me if this is indeed the case of if I have this all the wrong way. Does it work well if this is the case? or is the extra module mostly overlooked?

Opinions please...

  1. It probably just means that it is guaranteed to boot with that RAM in it, nothing more.

    The Dual Channel Mode may deactivate if you use the 3 sticks.
