I have a Gigabyte board called GA-EP45C-DS3. It has four DDR2 slots, and 2 DDR3 slots.

I would like to use them in parallel, and achieve the result of 12gb RAM.

Will it work?

It is one way to use DDR3 in DDR2 mode. Why to downgrade DDR3? It does not make sense. DDR3 will have refresh rate that of DDR2. This could also cause memory corruption, or system instability.
