Guys, I need some help here. I have read up in multiple forums about compatibility issues with the ASUS P8P67 PRO Rev 3.0 and the Corsair Vengeance (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B) 2 x 4gb. Corsair's site says its compatible but it's not listed on Asus's QVL list. I have read many, many post's about it working great with no issues, and many others saying it doesn't. Any clarification would be deeply appreciated.
On another note, I am having second thoughts about my decision to go with the ASUS P8P67 PRO LGA 1155 <Rev 3.0> simply because the is no real definitive information out there if the detection issues for this board still exist, BSOD's, sleep and wake issues, or random freezes. I have also read that there is now a <Rev 3.1> version out, and I'm not sure what the difference is there. There seems to be a lot of discussion in the forums as to what the correct BIOS is for the 3.0, and I'm just really worried that I am going to have problems once I assemble this system. I have already purchased and recieved all the below parts, and I am ready to assemble. Here is my build:

- Asus P8P67 Pro <3.0>
- Intel Core i5-2500K
- Cooler Master Computer Case RC-692-KKN2
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
- Western Digital 1.5 TB Caviar Black SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache
- (OS Drive) Crucial 64 GB m4 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s
- Corsair Vengeance Blu 8 GB PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM
- Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive
- Corsair CMPSU-750HX 750-Watt HX Professional Series 80 Plus Certified
- Windows 7 Professional

This build will be primarily for playing World Of Warcraft, hopefully at max settings (your thoughts on that too?). The motherboard issues and memory compatibility are my primary concerns. Any thoughts about the build are appreciated as well.

The 3.1 revision has a different USB3 controller chip, but I think that's it for changes.

Pretty much all you can do at this point is assemble the system and test thoroughly. If you find you have a problem, then do some RMAs.
