    Hey I've been trying to find out if my Inspiron laptop can handle DDR2 at 667mhz, although Dell only sells 533mhz models which makes me wonder if it's even compatible. And another one, are Intel Core Duo's compatible with all socket 478 motherboards? I assume they are, I mean I've never in history heard of a socket that's not compatible with the same name socket processor. It's got a 667mhz fsb though, which might make things wierd because I remember the Athlon XP 3200+ wasn't compatible with older mobo's that didn't support the 400mhz fsb so could this be the same thing? Thank you

    I have used DDR2 from Corsair as they have a differential clock input. Meaning it will under or overclock.


    No problems yet.
