About using DDR400 Memory

Last response: in Motherboards

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.

heya Dejunjing;

I say always get a second oppinion, so here it is.

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.
