I'm getting a X58 mobo. I have 4 x 4GB RAM (dual channel).
Since its a triple channel board, I can only use 3 out of the 4? Can it run in triple channel (if I use 3 sticks) since they are dual channel (Corsair Vengeance)? If I run 4 sticks will the board default to dual channel?
cpu i7 920 LGA1366
mobo: Rampage 2 or a Gigabyte Sniper G-1

If you insert all 4 in the correct slots then you will be running in Dual channel! Based on what you are doing then having more memory is usually better than less unless of course it is an overkill from the start!
