I've never run across this before, but nowadays there are many options for bus speeds and not all procs and mobo's have the same options. The question is, what if you put a 1333 Core Duo in a mobo that is set up for 1066/800/533 MHz? Would it run the same, just limited to 1024? Or would it not run at all?
Same question with memory, if the mobo support up to 667 MHz and you put 6400 800 MHz memory, will the extra speed be wasted or will the memory not work at all?
