Solved Is a higher and supported MHz memory automatically recognized? Tags: FIC DDR2 Motherboards Memory Last response: June 20, 2011 12:45 AM in Motherboards Share alphabetsoup_71 June 19, 2011 4:58:53 PM I'm upgrading memory on an older machine. The motherboard supports "Dual-channel DDR2 800/667MHz memory, 8GB. Max". It currently has 2x512mb-DDR2-667 memory and I plan to upgrade to 2x1024mb-DDR-800 memory. If I put in the 800MHz memory, is it automatically recognized? The motherboard manual didn't mention a need to change any settings. This is the mother board (www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/detail_over...) Thank you!
