It IS possible to use ddr266 on new computers lmao

My memory is getting rma'd and to keep my computer operating I put in 2x256mb sticks of infineon ddr266 from my old hewlett packard northie. I even have my chip overclocked from 1.8 to 2.4 on it. I'm impressed I was able to do it. I had to set the divider to 133 with one stick before I could put both in at the same time. When I lowered the divider to 100 and upped the htt to 267 I had to set the timings manually because it tried to lower them from 2-3-3-6 to 2-3-2-5. This is great though I have my machine up while my memory is gone.

Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Core i7 920 (4.0ghz 20x200 1.2625core, 1.88pll, 1.3qpi)

well ddr chips are all the same they just have different speed ratings so yeah if you run it at a low speed it should be fine
