hey there guys.
i have core i3 530 @ 2.93
mobo; asus p7h55.
ram; corsair xms3 2x2gb and one stick of 4gb=8gb.

i want to ask you guys the with combination i have (2x2gb rams on light blue slots and 4gb stick on black) are my memories running on dual channel? according to corsair my cmx4gx3m1a1600c9 which is 4gb is single module and cmx4gx3m2a1600c9 which is 2x2gb is double module. now the status of channel which i am getting on CPUz is Dual. i mean is this really true ? they all are running on dual channel?

from here i applied the dual channel with three sticks method. and my memory config is exactly the same.
thanks

Yes they should be running in dual channel mode. Keep in mind that while your total commit is balanced on each channel, the number of ranks is not. One channel will have slightly higher latency than the other.

so in plain words they are acting normal? one channel having latency slightly higher than other have no or very minimal effect in real world? so i wont be much bothered about that
