Use the Corsair memory finder here:

Once you find all of the part numbers that are compatible then do a Google shopping query for stores which may still have compatible items in stock. Last time I looked Corsair's stock for those modules that are compatible were zero.
I am familiar with the RAM finders available on the internet. I have also played with Crucial's memory finder as well. Thank you for the tip! :)
I have read though that this particular RAM will run on this board with a little bit of BIOS tweaking, which I was attempting to refer to in my OP. I realize that my board is generations old, but I'm not ready to buy a new one yet.
When you say 'incompatible' are you speaking in terms of simply 'out of the box install'? Or will these chips not work even with the voltage and mhz tweaking? Again, like I said, I have read that some people have made these chips work =/
EDIT - Not to continue kicking the horse or anything, but I think I've changed my mind on the DIMMs I'm going to try anyway.
I've read here in these forums that people are having success running G. Skill ram at 1600mhz (2x4gb) on the 790i Ultra, so I think that's the route I'm going to take at this point, also noting that it will work on future i7 boards when I decide to make my move into current gen.
I appreciate all the responses I've received and still welcome any further advise. Thanks guys!
