I Upgraded to a new motherboard that only has 4 (daul channel) memory slots. The board that it replaced had 6 (triple channel). I had 24gig of ram installed on the prior 6x4. My question is can I use only four of the6 sticks on my new board ? Is it able to be broken up like that? New board does support the ram speed that I have

    Yup. Just pop the ram sticks in and you should be good to go - they'll run in dual channel provided that they're identical sticks (4x4gb, dual channel).

    Kit RAM is no different to normal RAM - it's just two sticks of single sticks. Say you bought a 4gb kit (2x2gb). Essentially; you're buying two 2gb sticks which can be used individually, or in dual/triple channel depending on your available motherboard slots and the amount of ram you bought.
