My motherboard specifies memories of 66 and 100 Mhz.
What happens if I were to use a memory of 133 MHz ?

Thanks

Several possibilites:

1). It won't work at all.
2). It will work but be unstable and cause crashes.
3). It'll work perfectly.

And that goes for just using PC133 alone and for mixing and matches PC133 and PC100/PC66. Using PC133 alone offers a better chance for it working perfectly then mixing it. Many PC133 sticks are of higher density and use a slightly different manufacturing process that sometimes makes them incompatible with older memory and motherboards. But unless you try you won't know. If possible get PC100 RAM.

i have tried it before on a 300MHz pc that i brought for $15


depending on the ram, it will just run at the pc 100 speed instead of pc 133.


i used PNY brand ram.


most RAM will do this. just don't buy a brand called centon

i tried it, it worked good for about a week then it stopped working, the pc only picked up 16MB out of 256 which is bad.

they offer no support.

people have to stop getting 3 and 4 year old kids to make ram
