Crosshair III Formula using PC3-12800 RAM?

I am considering to buy the Asus Crosshair III Formula MB. I am going to buy RAM to it at the same time, but I wonder what RAM to buy. I have been researching on this MB for some time, and on ASUS' site they say that the MB supports all 1600 MHz memory, but everywhere else people say that it only supports up to PC3-10600 memory. The result of my research would become the two questions:

1. Is it possible to use other memory than the ones mentioned in the Qualified Vendor List?

2. Can I use PC3-12800 memory with the Crosshair III Formula motherboard, like these?:
