Default dual channel memory

does a motherboard have to support dual channel memory? like is there only certain motherboards that allow/support dual channel? or does dual channel memory work on any mobo.(i kno it has to have the right number of pins and be a compatable speed)

sorry for the newb-ish question.

No, I'm pretty sure that one doesn't. The ones that do on the ASUS webpage specifically list dual-channel RAM in the Spec pages, the mobo you listed doesn't

I don't think that is correct.
I think the increase in performance is more like 20%.
