Am i going to have a compatability issue?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey, i brought some Kingston 2GB (2x1GB Kit) DDR2 533MHz/PC2-4200 Non-ECC CL4 RAM for my AsRock 775i65G, stupidly i forgot to check what type my motherboard supports, my motherboard supports...

- Dual Channel DDR memory technology
- 2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333/266
- Max. capacity: 2GB

looking at this it looks like that RAM isnt supported by my motherboard, ide thought i would ask here to make sure that im correct since im a techie in the training

Thanks in advance

Nope,won't work. You bought DDR2 and your motherboard supports DDR1. It won't fit into the slot.
Once again...

If the RAM is too high, it will lower it's speed to the highest the motherboard can handle in most cases.

EDIT: Didn't see the DDR2. It won't physically fit.
