Default Dual Channel Ram

If you were to buy a dual channel memory kit, would it be possible to run the sticks in a motherboard that isn't dual channel supported? Would they just run like normal dimms?

If it aint broke, fix it till it is.

Yes. There is no difference between a dual channel kit and just buying two of the same model of RAM. They will run like normal RAM.

Yes since their is NO SUCH THING as dual channel ram.

Dual channel RAM is just a pair of single channel ram, I can run 2 different brands (kingston and elexir \ ultra) in dual channel easily.

We need to make this a sticky
