Hi,
I was wondering about dual channel memory, if I'm able to use A2 and B2 slots instead of A1 and B1 slots
since I have a big heat sink fan it covers the A1 slot. My motherboard is ASUS M3N72-D.

Yes, the order in which you use memory slots does not matter.

Yes, as long as your use them in their respective concurrent slots they will run in dual channel. They are usually color coded now.

Different OEM's pair them differently, but those color coded slots are what you wanna look for.

Same color slots. The BIOS will also verify the memory is running in dual channel.
