Yes, I recently ran several different types of our Dominator memory on a DFI 975 X/G MOBO. It ran without issue and I was able to OC to 430mhz@1:1 with 4 DIMMs.

I made this post in relation to this from the Abit site;

Q: Why my motherboard does not support X4 DDR2 memory modules? (AA8-3rd Eye, AA8-DuraMAX, AA8XE, AA8XE-3rd Eye, Fatal1ty AA8XE, LG-80, LG-81, LP-80, LP-81, IL8, AL8, AL8-V, AW8, AW8-MAX, AW8-MAX 3rd Eye II, AW8D, AB9, AB9 Pro, AW9D, AW9D-MAX, iL-90MV)

A: According to the Intel specification, all standard 256 Mb, 512 Mb and 1Gb technologies and addressing support x 16 and x8 devices. It doesn't support x 4 DDR2 memory modules.

Though apparently it means the 975 chipset wont support 128x4 modules

That's not surprising and should not be a problem any time soon. I can't imagine any company using x 128mb ICs these days to make a 512mb module. It is still cost prohibitive with all of the less expensive alternatives.

NVidia don't document it or mention it on thier pages - so either no-one encountered it or it doesn't afect Nvidia boards
I would guess that no one has encountered it. As I said, there is no logical reason to ever make that module with those ICs.
