Question Dual, tripple, quad - What does it actually mean?

Ok. I've been reading around forums trying to find out what the deal with dual, tripple and quad channel memory is, and I would simply like to get a yes or no if I understand this correctly:

All DDR3 ram sticks are the same, and what determines if it you have dual, tripple or quad channel memory, is the memory controller on the motherboard. Considering this, you can use any DDR3 memory stick for quad channel memory, as long as you have 4 identical ones. Say i.e. you have two sets of "dual channel memory sticks", these would work in a quad channel setup (as long as everything is within the borders of what the motherboard can do).

Is this right, or am I totaly off target?
