    only two dimm slots are duel channel on a 4 slot m/b.
    so if there was 4 dimm's only 1 pair will be duel channel.

    sry if this is a noob question.

    No.

    If all slots are used, with matching ram then, (motherboard problems excepted) it should be dual channel.

    Yup the motherboard has two memory channels, each channel attached to two slots. So with four DIMMs installed there would be two memory modules per channel, and you'd be running dual channel.
