FSB and RAM

2010-08-19, 15:12 PM
Hello, I have an r61 with an 800mhz fsb CPU and I need to upgrade the RAM, can the motherboard make use of pc2-6400 memory as well as the CPU or is it only the CPU that can use the faster memory? I can't find the motherboard's maximum fsb anywhere. Thanks!

It generally doesn't matter what speed RAM you use - most modern laptops aren't picky about RAM. If you use RAM faster than your system supports, it will generally just clock the RAM down. If you use slower RAM, then everything runs at that slower speed. And don't obsess about the speeds - RAM speed differences make very little difference in overall performance.
