What happens when I in ram faster than my mobo supports.. Tags: Memory RAM Last response: November 24, 2007 11:49 PM in Memory Share nX07 November 24, 2007 8:37:18 PM I want to put in another GB of memory into my current system, the ram I want to put in is PC2-6400 at 800MHz.. the motherboard is an ASUS P5AD2-E Premium and says to support DDR2 711 natively. What would happen? I figure it would just downclock itself, but I could be wrong..
