Well shoot, I KNEW I was missing something hehe. Looked through soooo many mobos before I decided on that one. Now reading the description I see that it says "Up to 24GB of DDR3 1333 RAM can be installed..." but when I decided on the board I was looking at the "Specifications" tab, wherein it said "Memory Standard: DDR3 2000(O.C)/1866(O.C)/1800(O.C)/1600(O.C)/1333." I just ignored the O.C when deciding on it for some reason; I figured it could run all the speeds with no problem.
Again, I'm currently running this PC with the "DRAM Frequency" setting at "DDR3 1600MHz." This does not feel like "overclocking" but appears to have achieved the desired effect, no?
Oh, and incidentally, anyone got any guesses as to why my video card emits a high pitched buzz when I run a 3D application? I plan to contact HIS about this but if there was a way I could fix it myself that'd be great; one of the last things I want to do now that I've got this PC running is have to wait on an RMA on an essential component like the video card...
It's this card.
While we're at it, there's a sort of ticking noise that occurs when doing almost anything that changes the display... even scrolling over a text document is enough to trigger it. This I can tolerate though as it is not an especially annoying sound or anything.
