There is no such thing as dual, triple or quad channel memory. All those multi channel kits are is regular memory all packaged together. You could buy memory one stick at a time and as long as it is matching, it is exactly the same stuff as a same brand and spec quad channel set. This is a gimmick to get people to think they do something special to a set of memory that is in one package. Because they tend to charge more for memory that says dual, triple or quad channel memory kit. Don't fall for it, just buy the memory that has the quality and specs that you're looking for, at the best price. There would be nothing wrong with buying quad channel memory. Just don't pay extra for it, because once you install it and throw the package away. It's the same as any other memory. So no there is no loss of performance from using two dual channel kits. As long as they have the same performance specs.
