ECC Registered 400 Mhz (PC3200) Memory in Athlon 64 FX-51 Mobo (Asus SK8N) rated at pc2700/2100/1600.

Will ECC Registered 400Mhz (PC3200) memory work in a motherboard rated for ecc registered PC2700/2100/1600 memory? I understand that it will obviously not run at its correct speed, but would it be damaged or damage the mobo (an ASUS SK8N).
Thank you.

PC3200 will operate at PC2700-1600 speed, it will not damage the motherboard or the memory, only your wallet.
