If the board is for ddr3, then it's possible. Asus can be picky about the ram. If in doubt, contact asus before ordering the board or look on asus website for tested memory with this board.

I think it support DDR3 memory upto 1800, but 1800 and 1600 are supported only by overclocking.

bubs353 is right. The mobo's manual lists several qualified vendors for 1600 and 1800 memory.

I bought 4 sticks of

F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ from NewEgg

I also bought ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

Asus’ Qualified Vendor list doesn’t list your memory. Does it mean I should return it and get a different one?

F3-12800CL9D-2GBNQ and F3-12800CL9D-6GBNQ are on their list, but not F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ. Why not?

What should I do?

If it will work in this board, will it be used in dual channel mode? What settings should I put in the bios?

I have an ASUS AM3 mobo and use memory on it that isn't on the qualified list either. Works just fine. ASUS is not very diligent about listing all usable products.

In your case, your sticks will obviously work. You have 2 sticks of a memory of which ASUS says 1 stick and 3 sticks are qualified. There's absolutely no reason why 2 wouldn't work.

Just to be sure: the product number you're listing is for 2 sticks with 2GB each, while you state you bought 4 sticks. ??

correct, i bought 2 sets. each set has 2 sticks of 2GB. sorry about the confusion.

Won't be a problem either.
