Can I mix different cas RAM

  PhiltheFragger 17:35 31 Jul 2005

Have a dell dimension 4300 with 256mb pc133 cas3 ram.
Like to boost it upto 512mb but on crucial, the 256 chips available are cas2

Prefer not to have to ditch existing RAM

Any ideas

I've done it on my PC for PC3200 DDR Ram running in dual-channel mode with no problems for more than a month, so you should be OK. Of course, prior to attempting this I did some research using Google. G

Can I mix CAS2 and CAS3 parts? What should the motherboard settings be?
CAS2 and CAS3 parts can be mixed. BIOS settings should reflect the CAS3 setting, as the CAS2 module will run at the CAS3 setting when it is installed with a CAS3 module

Another option would be to run the Crucial System Scanner click here. G
