I assume you`re asking how to run your ram in dual channel mode?

Your mobo manual will tell you which dimm slots to use for dual channel memory operation.

Its better than single channel thats for sure... but only if your motherboard supports it..

If your motherboard has colour coded slots where the RAM goes, put each stick in the same corresponding colour slots eg blue and blue etc.
 
Make sure you unplug your computer from the mains before you open it up.

Be very careful when handling the sticks of ram as they are prone to damage from static. I suggest you either wear an antistatic wrist strap or keep yourself grounded at all times by touching the chassis.

It will still read the same amount of ram, it`s just that in dual channel mode, you`ll get better performance from your ram and therefore your system. See HERE for info on dual channel ram.

Just to ease all doubts off of ur mind, download CPU-Z from here and run it. Click the Memory tab and the Channels # option will be the one ur looking for.
