Will a DDRII stick of 667 or 800 work as 533 in a max 533 system?

  1. Make sure that the new module has an SPD table for 533MHz, but that isn't a guarantee that it will work. Why not get a module that's on the QVL and follow the recommendation at http://www.techdc.com/msi-wind-nettop-100-assembly?
  2. Thanks for the quick answer. Just because my local store only has 667 and 800 sticks I wanted to know. Was too lazy to make the drive to get a 533 stick. But thanks for the heads up!
  3. The 667MHz probably has a better chance to work properly.
