I should point out that I am not sure. But I don't see why they wouldn't.

Of course they do, as specified by ASUS. I use the bigger brother (ASUS M5A99X Evo) and it works fine here.

I've got the ASUS M5A97EVO board and (from memory) it has something like a Disk Unlocker(?) app that comes with it to deal with larger sdds.
