Can I upgrade my memory from 100Mhz to 133Mhz?

Question

I have an Intel 810e chipset that currently has 128mb sdram dimm 100mhz unbuffered memory. I want to add 256mb in the other slot. Can I use a pc-133 133mhz stick in that slot and will I get the full 256mb or do I need to stay with a 256 pc-100 100mhz stick? You have a great show. Thanks, Tom

You need to stay with the 100Mhz memory The Chipset clock speed is set for 100Mhz, so the 133Mhz memory stick will not work.
