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.

[edit] 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.
