View Full Version : Mixing RAM Speeds



13-07-2001, 08:00 PM
Our computer has 128MB of PC100 SDRAM. I am considering doubling the memory by adding another 128MB of PC133 RAM. I am told this is possible as the faster RAM will step down in speed to the slower RAM. Is that correct, and has anyone had problems mixing RAM of different speeds, and if so, what were those problems.
Thanks.

It shouldnt be a problem, I added a 64mb stick of pc133 to my existing 64mb pc100 and they both seem to work fine.
Although I have heard of a few problems mainly due to certain types of motherboards or different ram brands not working together, Compaq computers can be pretty picky about the type/brand of ram so be carefull if you have one of those.
