I need to upgrade my RAM and my computer specifies that I need 3.3v unbuffered SDRAM 12ns, DIMM, 168 pin. Can I use a RAM chip with 8 ns or 60ns, and have it run properly?

Thanks,
Lee

8ns shouldn't be a problem. DOn't know if 168 pin 60ns will give you a problem but it will slow down

just a note you can always use faster ram without a problem. If you are using as type of fast processor don't even consider 60 go with the 8ns
