I currently have an Asus K7V mobo with 128mb pc100 ram....On my old computer i have 256mb of 66mhz ram, if I pop this into my new comp and it is stable, does this mean it can run at 100mhz safely?
Someone MUST know PLEASSSSE?
Who knows. It may actually be PC100 SDRAM marked as PC66 for supply/demand purposes or it's just good quality and is tolerating the 100MHz bus speed for now. There is a reference chart at Micron's website that lists what the specs are for the RAM they produce based on the serial numbers on each stick. That is if it's Micron memory. If you bought it in OEM/bulk packaging, there's a good chance that it is since they are one of the largest manufactures of SDRAM in the US.
Im pretty sure its only 66mhz, my old comp would never post with pc100 ram....so if its stable in games like Quake3, that means it is tolerating the speed and should be safe? I dont wanna fry my poor dimms or something
If the system runs, you're in! Speed is not known to damage RAM.
Before the PC100 spec was established by Intel, I bought some premium "66" dimms that were good to at least 117!
nice ram rob! I did a burn test thing and its perfectly stable, god Kingston rules!
