post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is the motherboard i have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188033

It says memory standard is DDR2 800 does that mean I cant put any RAM faster than 800?

i know it can support the higher speed ram(ddr2). at most it will lower the speed to 800mhz. but with intel i believe they will work with out the ram slowing down.

You can put in faster ram, but it'll be scaled down. Useful when oc'ing because you will have more room and won't be limited by your ram.

You can run faster RAM but all of them will only run at 800Mhz, which is what the DDR-800 Means. 800Mhz is the mainstream speed though so not to worry.
