Also you could conceivably mix the RAM you have with some newer RAM; but it will come at a cost. You'd have to play with it in the BIOS to reach the highest common denominator (by upping the voltage and lowering the speed to maybe 1333 or even lower).
And sorry. I see now that you already knew about the ASUS QVL...
Hmm, ok, thanks, that's food for thought. I was hoping to get at least 1866, preferably 2133 out of the RAM, but that may be asking a bit much for the limited budget I have.
Are you using the RAM at its rated speed?
This is the kit I was considering before reading your reply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231499
2x of those, it's on the QVL, is 1.5v, and resonably priced. Unfortunately they don't have any 8x4gb kits that I can see at least.
That kit got me tempted to try this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231499
Which are similar timings / volts to another g.skill 8x8gb kit on the approved list, but I'm not sure.
 Just found the 8x4gb kits, looks tempting: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231502
and the kit on the QVL, but in 8x4gb variety: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231500
OOS on that one, same price as the 2133.
I dislike those heatsinks so badly though.
