I have two 4gb G.Skill Ripjaws V 2444mhz RAM.
My Motherboard has 4 Ram slot.
I want to add more Ram.
I'm playing to buy Two 8gb same model same speed RAM.
So will it work in dual channel? Or they will work like single Chanel?

They will work in 2 x dual channel, provided they are set up correctly. Consult your motherboard manual how to place the RAM sticks. The RAM slots are sometimes colorcoded:

In the top right however, you can see DDR3_A1, DDR3_A2, DDR3_B1 and DDR3_B2. A1 and B1 go together, just like how A2 and B2 go together. Check your motherboard manual for more, accurate info.

Only the set of identical sticks will work as dual channel. The 8 GB would be added as standalone. There simply need to be 2 of the same kind to make use of dual channel.
