quick Qs about SMM

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
according to wiki here about SMM, it seems that each core 2 duo series has been synchronized to specific speeds. I wanted to pair my E8400 with DDR2 1066, but as it's stated, it is better to pair it with DDR3 1333 str8away.
How do u guys think!? can I pair it with ddr2 1066, will it work??

ddr3 1333 has bittersweet timings. Chances are you wont notice a performance increase there. Might be easier to OC though since you will be 1:1 ..
