compatibility of old sdram: pc133, 100, 66
i think it is right to post this here: i find out there's an interesting phenomenon on old box [pII, pIII] -- if you insert different brand of SDRAM with the same speed, it is very likely the speed will drop. e.g. my pIII 933mhz box have 3 stick of ram: 2 x hynix PC133 128MB and 1 x NEC[?] PC133 128MB. but if you put them together they would run at PC100. if you put only two of them they would run at pc133. would it be even better if i just install 2 of them? the trade-off is losing 1/3 memory for 1/3 faster speed. i wonder if you guys encounter similar problem
