[Beowulf] one vs two memory sticks

I was wondering for a core2 machine with two ddr2 channels. What whould give
the best preformance in term of the number of memory sticks.

As far as I know with core i7 it is best to put one memory stick per channel,
but as the core2 still connects via the north side bus I was wondering if
things are the same or whether the north side bus is the bottleneck.

Thanks
