Will more than 8 GB of RAM work on ASUS P5E3 Premium?

There seems to be some anecdotal evidence here and here that I could put more than 8 GB of RAM (say, 16 GB) into the 4 slots on the ASUS P5E3 Premium motherboard.

Can anyone confirm whether or not this will work?

I currently have 2 x PC3-10666 PN OCZ3G133334GK memory modules, so 4 GB of RAM and two free slots. Could I add 2 x 4 GB and end up with 12 GB? The overclocking settings on the board would allow me to adjust voltage etc., I think, but I have zero experience with overclocking.

Unfortunatly not.... if it does work for some people, I wouldn't recommend it.

This motherboard is built on the Intel x48 chipset which has a max of 8GB
