Ram upgrade speed dillema - 03-18-2010, 01:11 AM
Sorry for maybe a redundant question, although I searched this forum and found nothing on this.
here is my question.
I saw 2 compatible memory upgrade sticks on Crucial one was
Part #: CT1201088 • DDR2 PC2-6400 • CL=6 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-800 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64
The other was
Part #: CT1201090 • DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64
After chatting with a rep on line I was told that 800 MHz was backwards compatible, so if the system caps it at 667 it makes not difference which one I get.
Meanwhile I also read that a faster speed will actually slow down the system by underclocking down to 667.
Please tell me if I should keep the currrent order or change it.
Thanks in advance. BTW am waiting on my system to arrive.
