Hey, guys, I have this motherboard with these specs:

CPU: Intel i7 7700 3.60 GHz
GPU: GeForce GTX 970
PLACA: ASUS PRIME B250M-A (supports till 64 Gb of ram ddr4)
RAM: DDR4 16 GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2x8GB/2400

At this point, I'm using my PC to stream/gaming and editing ( premier and after effects)

I will upgrade my graphics on September with a 2070super or maybe a 2070

Ok, then the question is :

Can i keep using 2x8GB 2400 and also a 3th stick of 1x16gb (with kinda the same speed maybe 2666)at the time and keep having dual channel on?

thanks really appreciate

I think you can.
The MB maps the lowest amount of memory from either channel for dual channel. In your case....they would be the same....16 GB in each channel....so I think it should work.

Just make sure the two 8 gig sticks are in one channel and the 16 GB stick is in the other channel.

You don't want an 8 and 16 in one channel.
