Wrong. For the week I had the Dominators, they ran at 1066MHz, no problems. The problem I had was a getting a stable FSB (not memory) overclock with all four slots filled. This will probably be fixed in the next BIOS.

Tiki also had some badass memory speeds with his previous build.

And so does the Asus - its the same frakkin chipset.

Yes, it will. The Asus board only has problems with OCing with that memory if ALL FOUR SLOTS ARE FILLED. And the rumor on the Corsair forum is that the next BIOS will fix this.

That was only true with BIOSes before 0901 and 1002. Now I'd call them at least even, if not in favor of the Striker.
