|It will not get slower, and it will not crash. In fact the memory would tend to be a better choice if it is a supported product I'd think.|
I think we are saying the same thing. I was pointing out what is common wording as opposed to full explanations.
The wiki seems to suggest that if one bought a set of ram sold as dual channel it won't work in a normal non-dual channel computer. This is what I gathered from the OP.
The original worry was that the ram would not work. It will work at the motherboards slower rate since it is not dual channel capable.
It is unlikely that you could purchase two sticks even if the same brand and get them to work. To be assured that the dual channel can be somewhat trusted the sticks have to be matched. They are sold as dual channel ram.
