Default MSI 970A-G46 RAM upgrade, 16GB vs 32GB

This is my board. I know it is old. However, I would like to upgrade the RAM to 16GB or 32GB. The website states dual channel, though the manual states quad channel. I am not sure if that is a typo. To get the best performance without overclocking, can I use 4 8GB chips or would I have better performance with 2 8GB chips? Again, I am not sure about the dual/quad.

1. Which configuration will get me the best/fastest performance?

2. Will I lose the dual channel, if I install 4 chips?

3. Does this board actually have quad channel?

4. I would like to use 1866 Mhz RAM, since it does not appear to require overclocking. I am already OCing the AMD 8150 @ 4Ghz. What Corsair RAM can I use for this?

5. Power Supply is Corsair 1050.

Not sure what else to ask. Thanks for any help.
