|I didn't look up your board, but the "7" in the name tells me it's an Athlon XP board. So, you can put PC3500 (DDR433) in it, but:|
-It will default to PC3200. You'll have to overclock the CPU FSB to get the memory to run at DDR433. If you have a 400MHz FSB Athlon XP, you'd bump the CPU bus speed to 216MHz and keep the FSB:DRAM ratio at 1:1. This would result in a slight performance boost over PC3200.
-If your Athlon XP has a 266 or 333MHz FSB, you'd have to underclock the memory to DDR266/PC2100 or DDR333/PC2700. Running the memory at DDR433 would actually hurt performance. Socket A was very picky about its FSB:DRAM speed ratio. It's very important to keep it 1:1
