I'm running 16 gb on a 880 chipset board and have no issues at the default settings. All four sticks are the same running at 9-9-9-24 using gskill ripjawsX 1333.

So it will run , but only at 1333 not 1600 ? so I should buy 1333 instead of 1600 ram

ASUS's website seems to be on the fritz right now. Memory frequencies depend on your CPU, the 1090T can run up to DDR3-1600~DDR3-2000 if you either OC the FSB 240MHz or CPU-NB Frequency to 2400MHz. This is not the situation for the new Zambezi which are DDR3-1866 native,but still require manual settings in most all cases.

With the 1090T DDR3-1600 CAS 8/9 2x4GB or 4x4GB matched sets are fine with the tweaks or DDR3-1333 without OC. Running DDR3-1600 without FSB or CPU-NB Frequency will cause errors in high load situations e.g. Prime + Blend.

The specs I see are:
DDR3 1866/1600/1333/1066
32GB (4x8GB)
