A8n SLI Premium w/DDR500 -futureproofing


Recommended Posts

I'm fairly new to computer building and overclocking. I just received the parts for my computer and am considering returning the 2x1024 XMS PC3200C2 for the PC4000 modules...the price isn't that much of a difference.


Until I learn how to overclock, will the PC4000 RAM easily work with my board? I've read that the memory will only run as fast as the FSB and will effectively run at PC3200 until I start overclocking.


Aside from any potential physical defects in my hardware, should I 'theoretically' be able to plug the PC4000 RAM into my mb and expect it to boot without messing with the timings?
