aye, they work fine in a friends comp and passed memtest with no problems. On the asus site the memory compatibility list isnt working for me so i cant be 100% sure they are compatible. They dont run at 1066 individually either.

My 2 cents on this board:

I've had 8 of them now. Here's the breakdown and how they failed:

1st: DOA
2nd: Died in 2 months, no overclock
3rd: DOA
4th: Damaged on arrival
5th: Died in less than 24 hours, no overclock
6th: DOA
7th: Lasted 8 months, died with moderate overclock(maaayyybe 8% o/c)
8th: Throttling at about 10% overclock, have to keep it near stock to keep it running

I'm done trying to RMA this board, I'm getting a new one this week. Extremely disappointed in ASUS with this one, I've always used their boards after benching MSI's and Gigabytes and they've always gotten a ton of speed in comparison, but this one is just a shame. I've only had it about a year and a half now, 8 boards in that time and I never really got to test drive this boy to see what she could really do.

hi, i am thinking of buying me one these boards, has the asus m3n78-vm before but that decided to die on me last week, i was just concerned about the 8 pin power connector do i need a 8 pin connector or not because 4 of the things have a cover on them.

Did anyone remove the heat dispensers? Because under it is some weird ****.....it ain't thermal paste thats for sure......not the one I'm using anyway. Mb temps got up to 52c. Thats right. in a lian li case. I got 8 fans in this thing and don't ask about airflow, that's all good! Replaced the termal goo with artic silver. no differance...maybe 2-3c lower but thats it. I have a sli rig and one of the gtx260 core 216 65 nm ( before anyone asks) is right against the SB. No overclocking possible or the damn thing overheats and shuts down. cpu is watercooled and overclocked using the mp. can't raise sb voltage or ht voltage damn thing fries. Nice job asus!!! You screwd up on this one. Looks good at first but after futher examination I would have to say that it doesn't do what you expect it to do.
