My current ASUS motherboard is compatible with DDR3 speeds 1066, 1333, 1600, and 1800 on 2 X 240 pin DIMM slots.
Can I install higher speed DDR3 RAM modules that exceed speed rating of this motherboard........for example DDR3 2933 (PC3 23400)? Will it just function at the highest DDR3 speed offered by my current motherboard? Or will it not function at all? Would it cause damage?
I am interested in doing this in case I upgrade to a faster, more powerful motherboard in the future. Then I would already have the faster RAM I could just switch from old to new board.
