I believe if you use b1 and b2, they will both be on the same channel, so you don't get the benefits of dual-channel. However, I think it should still work. Why not give it a try?

So I tried it and ran some tests using passmark. The only thing that's lower is the 3d graphics mark. All the other marks are the same.
Would my htpc with media browser server be affected if the 3d graphics mark is lower?

So I decided to just buy a matching set of standard height ram that will fit in slots a1 and b1.
Can I throw one of my old ram sticks in a slot b2 to get 6gb? Would the other 2 still run in dual channel and the 3rd stick in single? Or would adding a 3rd make it all single channel?
