A few have updated their lists in the last couple of weeks and there have been bios releases since your board died. Could swear someone hear dropped that kit into a board and got 3200...
The weird thing is, when my computer was running, I remember looking in hwinfo and it had listed my sticks as hynix... which was disappointing but the whole b-die thing wasn't exactly known when i first purchased the sticks. However, I came across this article
which mentions that the sticks are samsung based: "The freezer trick did not work for this kit, so we went to software to verify the ICs and were shown this kit is also Samsung based. Also, it should be known that these sticks are 44mm in height, and with no removable parts, room needs to be left with the cooler choice."
