Quad channel? I am not 100% but I assume that it would work if all the
sticks are identical...you never really know these days however.
One question for you: why you are using specifically Coreboot as
boot-loader, instead of (AMI) BIOS?
The question is because you are using desktop with AMD CPU for gaming. No
specific needs for Coreboot, which is mainly for embedded applications.
Any specific reason why you are using Coreboot instead of full fledged AMI
