Is DDR Memory backward compatable?


Recommended Posts

I'm building a new PC and have decided to replace the generic PC3200 memory I purchased with Corsair PC3200 memory.

Another family member has a PC and was asking if I could install the generic memory in their machine. I checked their PC and have found that their memory is PC2100.

Question: Is DDR memory backwards compatable? In other words, assuming that the chip organization is the same, will PC3200 memory work in a machine that was designed for a lower speed (PC2100, or whatever) memory? Thanks in advance.
