There's no point getting tri-channel (groups of 3 RAM sticks) because that motherboard doesn't support it even though you could buy the tri-channel, and use 3 slots, the RAM will only operate in dual-channel. For that motherboard it's best to be either 2 sticks or 4, not 3. Dual-channel (groups of 2 RAM sticks) is supported.
Tri-channel RAM comes in 3, dual comes in 2.
Why do you want tri-channel RAM for that motherboard?
