The Intel GL40 chipset that is used in the Li 3910 only has an FSB of 667MHz. So you won't profit from 800MHz modules.

"FSB Speed 667MHz"

Ok, I was confused by this document. So 800MHz are supported, but you'll only profit from it in a few situations. CPU intensive tasks can't use it because of the 667MHz FSB. The only component that will be fed with 800MHz is the GPU.
