The answer is yes, what ram are you getting? Overclock the ram and loosen the timings so the 3ghz can work. Now sure about the voltage and never bought that motherboard, but good luck!

No to have dual channel you must use 2 or 4 sticks. Each sticks in a pair must match in size. Both Pairs can be of different size.

There is only one chipset to my knowledge that can use 3 sticks its the Nforce 2 (old). In that case it was 2 sticks of the same size + a single stick with the size of both the other 2 sticks. Example: 512+512 paired with a 1GB.
