    Hi everyone, i have a question about memory sticks, is it ok to use 2 sticks pc133mhz with a pc100mhz in same system? Or is it best to stay with same types?

    Thanks at front, bye.

    its best to use same different brand rams and speed rams may not be compatible. u might have instability issues. also you pc133 ram will slow to pc100 if you mix it. you can try it and if you have no isssues then keep it. but u might have instability problems. also might run slower cuz ram clocked down to pc100. hope that helps.

    4W4K3 is right one with that: the PC133 chips will downclock to PC100 however you should be ok in either case -- it's not often that there is a memory conflict however considering how closely PC133 and PC100 are related
