Question Bout Older ram/mobo combo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently picked up a old asus p4p800 deluxe mobo http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...specifications.
The specs say It is capable of taking ddr400 mem. Can I put faster ram in there like ddr500 and it will just downclock?

Wat would you suggest as the best 1 or 2 gig combo for this mobo thanks.

It should, IIRC you can use higher latency RAM on a lower latency board and the RAM will run up what the board supports.
The timing on the RAM is a "given rating" and doesn't have to run at that speed, it may run faster or slower.
