Will this ram work with my motherboard/CPU

I have some old 100 Mhz SDRAM that I was hoping to use on my new 1600 Athlon XP and PCChips 830LR motherboard. It only says 133 Mhz SDRAM on it, so I wasn't quite sure if 100 would work too.

I'm just doing this until my DDR RAM arrives.

Thanks

  1. I wouldn't even bother, even if it worked it would slow the system tremendously.

    What's the frequency, Kenneth?
  2. You have very little chance that 100 MHz RAM works on a 133 MHz speed. Just wait till you have the DDR RAM.

    My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground :eek: .
  3. Well, the RAM came yesterday, so I'm good... thanks for the help.
  4. BTW, you can't use DDR in an SDRAM board (unless you have the ECS K7S5A or the Asus A7A266, which support both).

  5. ESC is PC-Chips. The board is probably the combo board.

  6. Yeah, there's two slots of both.
  7. Good call, I forgot about that.
