Will a DDRII stick of 667 or 800 work as 533 in a max 533 system? Tags: Memory CPUs Last response: March 1, 2010 7:13 PM in Memory Share stunna77 March 1, 2010 3:26:39 PM If I buy a stick of DDRII 667 or 800 will the run at 533 in the following build? Will it downgrade itself once installed in my system? Or do i have to buy a stick of 533 to be compatible?

Why not get a module that's on the QVL and follow the recommendation at http://www.techdc.com/msi-wind-nettop-100-assembly? stunna77 March 1, 2010 6:48:06 PM 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! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
