Windows 7: Memory - unganged v ganged

Memory - unganged v ganged

I have just built a new computer, Win7 SP1 32 bit (my preference), AMD Phenom II x6, 4Gb RAM (2 x 2Gb sticks) with 3.25 usable and out of the balance 512Mb used for onboard graphics.

Bios is showing memory unganged, the query is, is there any advantage in switching it to ganged mode. (Note: I have 6 processors but not 6 sticks to have a stick per processor ). Is there any advantage here or is it best to leave well alone.
