have a question

i have an dfi lanparty sli-dr that supports sdram, and ddr

but now can iI also put DDR2 on my mobo?


Maybe it is too fast,

but can't I downgrade it, like from 667 to 400mhz?

or another option?


Thanks in advance

More than that, DDR2 ram won't fit in the socket. The position of the key slot changed between the two types. Also, a DDR socket only has 184 pins to make contact, whereas DDR2 requires a socket with 240 pins. DDR3 is also 240 pins, but again, the position of the key slot changed, so you can't accidentally mount a dimm of DDR3 in a DDR2 socket. As to would it work if it fit? No, in fact, it would kill the board. I've been a part of a force-fit test, and the board went boom.
