Chaintech mobo - what RAM ?

  Anonymouse 23:30 18 Aug 2003

Old Chaintech 6LTM mobo - Slot1.

Its got 3 memory slots, one of which has a 64MB PC66 SDRAM stick in.

Will it be OK if I put some PC100 RAM in the other 2 slots ?

I know it will only run at the lowest speed RAM, but as I've got the PC100 RAM spare - it seems a good use ?

128MB SDRAM, 66MHz Is what the Crucial site recommends.

Already looked at Crucial thanks, but it doesn't answer my question ?

I'm not sure, that's why I checked with the Crucial site and M/Board specs. I do know that in most cases it is ok to use the higher rated RAM and it will just default to the lowest stick on-board. Can't see any reason for it to be different in your set-up, but best to wait for conformation. Regards. j.
