Would i need to take the 3rd out for the 1st 2 to be Dual Channel? and would that mean better performance? More about : dual channel Best solution nvalhalla January 22, 2013 8:05:42 AM No, should still be dual channel, just not once you got past the first 8 GB. Honestly, you will have a hard time filling 8 GB right now, I don't think you need the extra stick. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
