    Hiyaz,

    I got a free pc of my aunt the other day its a P3 500Mhz, 256mb PC100 Ram, 15GB HD, Voodoo 3, Soundblaster PCI not bad for free,

    I didn't relise it was 100mhz clock until i put 133 memory in it, it broke windows a bit, but that wos before i was going to format it so it didn't matter,

    Anyway, I have like 90 something meg of 66mhz ram in my old pc the mobo supports 66mhz clock, will it be compatible with the 100 mhz?

    EDIT: The Mobo is a Chaintech 6BTM I think - so the manual says.
    Its made by Evesham Vale

    Cheers,

    SkaZZy:D

    The CPU FSB speed and the memory speed isn't the same thing. The 133 MHz memory should run fine at 100 MHz in that mobo. 66 MHz memory won't run at 100 MHz however. Perhaps the card can run 66 MHz memory (at 66 MHz) as well though.
