i have 3 sticks 256 and a 512 stick all different branks and my dual channel works.

you just pop them in and go, your mother board of course needs to support dual channel. but either way when you put the 4 sticks in, if they are all good the mobo will either run single chan if thats all it supports or it will know to go to dual chanel since you have the 2 pairs and its supported.

cas and latency wouldnt really matter, like i said all my 4 sticks are all different in everyway and it works fine, i even have 3 non-ecc and 1 ecc, kinda like the mutt of memory lol. and all my cas and latencys are diff.

with an alarm sounding would deff mean something is wrong, like one of the memory sticks isnt right for that system board. try adding 1 stick then booting seeing what happens, if that boots take it out and try 1 stick of the other one, and so on till you get through all 4 and see if you can boot with 1 stick of each by itself and when you cant boot you know which gives you the problem.

it mite be your board, try 2 sticks in dual chanel in slot 1 and slot 3 and boot. if that works, do dual chanel in slot 2 and 4 and see if that works.
