I had two sticks of a quad channel kit in and get 632. I install the other two sticks with everything on the same settings and I get 20 less points for 612? I tried it several times too. Any ideas?

Yip the system you are using works best in pure dual channel.
Adding the other two sticks add to the work overhead and as a result runs slower in a benchmark, simply because it now has four banks to populate and refresh instead of two.

Would one stick perform better on my M6Hero?

Probably not, because then you're only running single channel.

2 small fast sticks is what ya need :)
