About using DDR400 Memory Tags: Motherboards Memory Last response: October 22, 2004 2:18 PM in Motherboards Share dejunjing October 22, 2004 5:12:54 AM Hello All, If I have a DDR PC3200 memory, can I use it on a motherboard which only support <=PC2700 ram? I know this is a stupid match, but I hope to let the memory run before I buy a new motherboard (still waiting for it and my future CPU). Thanks.

All DDR is backwards compatible in the sense that it will function at a lower frequency, so you can take some pc4000 and put it on a 266FSB and it will work as intended. So no worries man. <b><font color=blue>Co-Founder and Administrator of Toms Hardware IRC</font color=blue></b> <b><font color=red> Server: hub1.oddnet.net Channel: #Tomshardware </b></font color=red> Can't find your answer ?
