Perhaps you all might have read too far into Jacob's statement. Jacob's statement referred to publicly posting lists of memory from the memory kits that were tested during development.
There are always dozens to hundreds of kits of memory that our engineering team will never be able to test (or may have available) during the life cycle of a product. However, it is the very rare case that a kit of memory that falls within the listed specs of the motherboard will turn out to be unsupported at its rated speed. Either way, traditionally, we only post the kits of memory that pass testing and there are rarely any that fail (usually because of a bad stick). Because of this, however, we get many calls and emails from people asking if a certain unlisted kit of memory will work on the motherboard, and the answer is that we expect it will work so long as it falls within the rated specs.
Our MB team will still do their due diligence to test memory throughout the engineering and qualification phases of a motherboard's design phase and it would be ludicrous to stop doing this. It seems some of you think this is what Jacob meant. We will still have an internal list of memory that were tested, along with the pass/fail data. Going forward, instead of listing an incomplete and partial list of memory kits tested that will work on the motherboard, it will be far more efficient to list memory kits that are deemed to be incompatible with our motherboard.
