Yeah. The way it uses the RAM modules (not sure exactly) is that the more you have, the faster and cleaner it runs. So if you have a max of 8 gigs on the mobo, with 4 slots, then 4 sticks of 2 gigs each would be optimal.
NOTE: 4 sticks of the exact same memory. I.e. same timings, same latency, same everything.
