what chipset/cpu does this MB use?  that drives what can be supported, 
and what might actually work.    a given memory configuration also 
requires BIOS support to properly initiallize the system memory 
controller for the memory size/shape/speed.

MB manuals are often full of errors, and are generally not updated once 
published with an initial version of a product, using boilerplate text 
from previous versions.   of course, this varies widely with mobo 
makers... Intel documentation tends to be more accurate and complete 
than most others, especially if you dig up and include the Technical 
Specification Updates....
