I dont have an intel core processor or any of those motherboards. It also says:
DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
[FONT=helvetica][FONT=times new roman]If you look in the OP my MB doesnt support 10666. just 10600 and 8500.

That means fricking nothing. It's just a marketing gimmik. One "made for sandybridge" can work on any system. All you need to know is, the DDR type, the speed, and the voltage and timings if you are OCing. Just because yours lists the compatability list, that means nothing. A new socket could come out soon, and uses that same kind of RAM.
You want heat spreaders, bro. They really do cool your RAM when at peak times, as gaming.
