    Question Upgrading my ram to a lower frequency but running dual channel to meet max cpu ram frequency.

    So I want to buy 2 sticks with 16gb each. I could buy 16gb @ 3200MHz but the 2400MHz ones are cheaper even if my computer supports 3200mhz. If I run them in dual channel can I get 1600MHz (dual channel) from each stick making a total of 3200MHz speed???
