Updating bios 790 ultra motherboard
(there was reports that V10 took it back down again but this is unconfirmed) the V9 evga bios is what I flashed the asus board to.during the week of use, the only thing I had problems was with the sound and sensors, windows loaded fine, even ran prime95 and memtest amongst other tests with no errors.
You are correct that they are using 4x4 GB sticks, the motherboard was rated to use 1.8v DDR3 ram, however I have some XMP ram that runs at 1.65V if needed, however was running fine at an underclocked rate from 1600 to 1333 at 1.5v (for best stability and to take the stress of the NB controller along with match the CPU FSB) to that end, I am running 2 of the sticks with the asus bios (2x4) at the 1.5v with again no issues even at their standard rate and an OC'd CPU (again to match the CPU FSB of the 1600mhz ram)So I can confirm it does work (other people also with the evga boards report no issues that I can find of running 16GB ram with the bios update) weather it shortens the life of the motherboard is yet to be seen, but at this point the board itself is fairly old (while still keeping up with everything I have thrown at it) and shortening it's life span isn't too much of a concern to me at this point.
