Celeron 1.7 (400FSB) and PC3200?

Recommended Posts

I am looking at getting a stick of Corsair Value Select PC3200 DDR Ram...

 

But I just want to confirm that I should be able to use a 512MB PC3200 DDR module with a Celeron 1.7Ghz (400FSB) cpu right? It's going in an Abit IS7-V2 motherboard (which is compatible with PC3200 DDR memory)

 

Thanks

Is that because it's not a 'true' 400 front side bus? I think it's really a 100FSB 'quad pumped' to 400 right? (or something like that)...

 

I should probably then just purchase some PC2100 ram and not bother with PC3200 if the CPU can't really take advantage of it...

 

thanks for any more help you can provide...

The true FSB is 100mhz for this particular CPU which means it can use PC-2100 memory or DDR266. Purchasing a PC-3200 module in most cases will be around the same price as a PC-2100 module and also have you ready if you ever upgrade and wish to use the same RAM.

 

Let us know if you have any more questions!
