  1. ok, installed a new mobo to replace an intel ca810e, couldn't have been easier. No problems and working great. In the bios I can,I think,change my ram frequency from 100 to 133 mhz. I am running 2x256 pc100, a P111 800 with fsb of 133mgz. My question is,will I damage my ram if I change to 133 and If I can, would this improve perfomance any? The mobo is a DFI CM-33 TL

    I don´t recommend running PC100 RAM as PC133. It COULD work, but I think it wouldn´t be very stable, and you won´t notice too much performance difference.

    I would stick with PC100 to avoid damaging anything. :hotbounce :hotouch: :hotbounce :hotouch:
