Can I run DDR400 at 266?

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.gigabyte (More info?)

Its been a few years since I took a good look at computer hardware, I
currently have an XP1800 with SDRAM133. I am upgrading the motherboard to
N400 Pro2, and getting DDR400. I cant afford a new chip for a few weeks, so
can i use the 1800XP with the 400 ram ?

    99% Yes you can . With the N400 Pro2 you will be able to run the
    memory at 400 and the processor FSB at 266. Though your system may be
    unstable that way, but still you can force 266 for memory also.

    Yes it will be fine, In fact the 400 ram will enhance your system!

    What speed should I run the ram at with an XP1800? (I dont want to overclock
    the CPU).

    Should I run the FSB and RAM at 133 or should I run the FSB at 133 and ram
    at 200 ?
