Re. a Duron Mainboard K7S5A - (Win 2k)

I have been discussing with a friend the upgrading of memory on my new Duron Mainboard - She wonders about the following, and says:

........................................................................................................


It depends whether we can take DDR-266, which runs then at 133mhz, and run it at 100.

The duron runs the memory at 100, but if you wanted to upgrade to an athlon later, you would need to run it at 133.

100 mhz memory cannot run at 133. We need to find out if 133 memory will run at 100.

.........................................................................................................


Does anybody know, please? Thank you for any advice you may be able to give.

There are two different versions for your board 1.x and a 3.x It appears either one support your need. Attached is screenshot of the users manual for the 3.x but the 1.x had the same Ram support.

Also here are your options from Crucial.com

Rev 1.x
http://www.crucial.com/store/listpa...(ECS)&cat=RAM&model=K7S5A+(Rev+1.X)&submit=Go
or Rev 3.x
http://www.crucial.com/store/listpa...(ECS)&cat=RAM&model=K7S5A+(Rev+3.X)&submit=Go

If you wish to download the users manual for your board then you need to locate the revision number on then go
Here to select your download.

Hope that helps.
