Did I Fry My Mobo?

Just got a new Mobo because of a shotty pci-e port, and my memory is DDR2 1066mhz (pc-8500), and my new board only supports 667/800 (pc-5300/pc-6400), do you think i could have damaged the board in anyway? asking before i go buy 4gb of pc-6400

ps. should of checked mobo specs first but on the box it said ddr 1066, so that was good enough for me to just of whacked it in staright up, but later realising it meant it can be overlocked to 1066...ugh fml

  1. no harm done, your memory will only run at 800mhz speed, so it will work but it won't perfom the way it should. If your BIOS has overclocking feature for ddr2 you should try it, but with the 1066mhz memory only ;)
  2. thing is i don't get any video with my current memory not even with on board i get not bios screen NOTHING, my monitor just sits on 'No Signal' (this is what made me look into the manual and realised my mem was too badass for it so i instantly thought ahh i got no video cos of my memory), so i took the memory out and power it up and i didn't even get a memory error beep, not getting a memory error beep worried me the most
