Memory Sticks and compatibility...

Has anyone ever been able to use PC133 SDRAM and PC150 ram together? I have heard rumours that you can but havn't found anything to support those claims...

I've seen them used together in systems, but with the memory set (in the BIOS setup) at 133MHz.

Check out Crucial's sight for what memory will work with your motherboard.

AlbertaBeef,

So you can do it, but you need to modify it in the bios so it sees it as the 133MHz?

also, is this underclocking dependant on my mobo being compatible with PC150, or can I still do it if the mobo only takes PC133?

You will have to underclock the PC150 ram to run with the PC133 ram.

it's not really considered 'underclocking' as your memory is specified to run at 150MHz or below -  with both sticks in your motherboard should run fine at 133MHz...

There shouldn't be any problems with doing this, however, your memory will only run at the speed of the slowest memory that you have.  So, the 150 will only run at 133.
