Unfortunately, in practice many have difficulty powering all 4 memory slots at once, and require a slight boost in voltage in order to stay properly stable.
As long as you have half-decent airflow in your case, an extra 0.1 or 0.2 volts to your memory shouldn't be an issue for those sticks.
Yeppers...i have the same board as the OP, and i have no troubles running my 2x1GB 8500 Ballistix with my 2x1GB Corsair XMS 6400C4. I do
run with vDIMM @ +.4v(2.20v)in BIOS...which is ~2.05v real. But it could very well be the 8GB, as my 4DIMMs equal 4GB.
