No. Socket 754 processors are single-channel only.

Intel Core i7 860
Corsair HX650W
Corsair XMS DDR3-1333 (4GB @ 8-8-8-24)
Sapphire Radeon HD 6870
Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB

Remember that the Athlon 64 processor has an on-die(i.e. it's integrated right into the processor itself) Memory-controller.
Consequently, it depends on the processor itself, NOT the motherboard what type or configuration, i.e. 64 or 128-bit(or single channel/'dual-channel' if you prefer) of memory is supported - on an Athlon 64-platform, the motherboard or chipset is completely irrelevant regarding this question.

Like Ardrid said, ALL Socket 754 processors(including mobile parts and Socket 754 Semprons) have a 64-bit, single-channel memory-controller.

A 128-bit, 'dual-channel' memory-controller is available on Socket 939(Athlon 64/Athlon 64 FX) and Socket 940(Athlon 64 FX/Opteron) processors - Socket 940 processors require registered memory.

Refer to the Athlon 64 Product datasheet' "> for a quick overview or the Functional datasheet' "> for the 754-pin package, section 2.4.2, for more detailed info
