One issue with that is that if you run the second bank with just one module in it and the motherboard has dual channel architecture then all the RAM may only run in single channel mode.

You can check your motherboard manual to see how that third stick in slot 4 (B2) will affect the rest of the channels.

FWIW, sometimes you can get better performance with 12GB of RAM in single channel made than you would get with 8GB in dual channel mode. It really depends on what you are doing.

If the programs you are using need lots of RAM space to load into, so there is less transfer from the hard disk, then you will see better performance with more RAM.

If the programs are data crunching monsters then the transfer speed from RAM to CPU would benefit from the dual channel architecture.

If you are writing Word documents and watching Youtube videos then I don't think it would matter at all!

Don't be afraid to test it out both ways. It won't hurt anything.
