Will an older motherboard which, according to specs, can run DIMM memory of 400 or less, still work with DIMM 800 or so?
DIMM 400 is obsolete, so it not easily available in strips of 1G or higher. But 512 MB of DIMM 400 is almost the same price as a more modern memory strip of 2G! Since the pin-out is the same, I was wandering if the more recent kind, like DIMM 800 would still work, but perhaps at a slower rate.
If I would try, would it just not work, or would it fry (or fry the motherboard)?
