Yes, if you have two they will run in dual channel.

Dear Experts!

 

i bought 8GB RAM of Single Stick to use with i7-4770K..

Later a friend of mine suggested me that i would have bought 2 Sticks of 4GB RAM's instead..

 

Will there be any difference in performance based on number of Sticks??

please explain

They both have their advantages. 1x8GB gives you a better upgrade path.

 

2x4GB gives you slightly better speeds, but they are not usually noticeable unless you are running integrated graphics.

Yes generally, except when you only have 2 slots and plan to upgrade soon, this means you will only need to buy one new stick, rather than two.
