Hello,

My boss wants to upgrade (increase quantity) all the workstations memory. Most are HP PIII 500 or 533 Mhz machines, and one is a Dell Celeron machine. My question is can PC133 run on PC100 motherboards. I seem to recall that as long as the speed is below you can use PC133 on PC100 cpu?

Thanks

there's some ram that says 'may not work in a 100Mhz system' so you want to be sure you get the right ram. other then that there shouldn't be a problem.
