Default Wrong Memory?

I've always felt like there was something wrong with my systems memory or something along those lines. I've been reading up information on memory but some of its getting confusing. Can one of you tell me if I have the right type of memory for my computer? I have a
Intel Pentium 4, 3000 MHz (15 x 200) Intel Springdale i865PE chipset
Asus P4P800-E Deluxe (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 1 WiFi, 4 DDR DIMM, Audio, Gigabit LAN, IEEE-1394)

1)Kingston ValueRAM 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
1)OCZ Revision 3 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
2x)CORSAIR XMS 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)

I know I'm suppose to have DDR 400 but arn't I suppose to have dual channel? How do I know if I have that or not? Can mixing the different brands of memory affect my performance? Or maybe my memory is getting too much voltage because my AI booster says my memory is getting 2.75 volts and when I read the specfications on this memory I have it says the voltage is 2.6. I know my PSU (APEVIA ATX-AS520W-BK ATX 520W) isn't that great maybe its been slowly killing my memory? I've had this computer for 2-3 years now.

Dual Channel:

Brands shouldn't make a difference as long as they are the same speed. In my opinion, your paranoid. Your config is ok.
