The Abit IP35-E motherboard specs say its DDR2 800 compatible, but no mention of 1066 - can I put in 1066 memory and clock it down to 800?

I've got an old self build PC that my wife mostly uses for general web surfing and occational video editing. As websites and software has advanced, the current 2GB DDR2 800 RAM is starting to struggle a little.

A mate has got 4 x 2GB DDR2 1066 memory spare and has offered it if its any use.


Many Thanks in advance!

It should work. It will only be run at 800MHz.

You'll be fine, it will just run at 800 MHz. Might get lucky and have it operate at 1066 anyway, but that's the outside chance.

I'll stick it in and see how we get on!
