You mean channel? The i5 can handle dual channel ram, but that also means it can use 4 sticks of ram. A quad channel cpu would be able to use up to 8 sticks of ram.

Z77 (M-ATX and ATX motherboards) support two Memory banks in each channel,making it dual channel.
X79 (M-ATX and ATX motherboards) can handle two banks in each channel too,thus making it eight slots in quad channel.
I7 Sandy bridge-E supports quad channel memory,
i7,i5 and i3 Sandy bridge and Ivy bridge revisions support dual channel memory.

You can buy a different pack but make sure to get one with the same timings like 10-11-10 and the same speed like 2133mhz.

Oh and anything above 1866 is waste for gaming
