    No, you'd notice no speed increase at all.
    You would gain a little overclocking headroom, though.

    my motherboard is a 333 fsb board that supports 400 memory. I asked the
    same question you did. I was told more "no" than "yes". I did it anyways
    and the system runs much smoother. I guess some of the advice might of have
    been based on the financial part. I could "afford" to do it. To me it was
    worth it. But if your strapped for money, maybe not. Just a guess, but I
    feel like my system is running about 20% faster with the newer ram. The
    first sticks were generic, the newer ones are Crucial. That may also be a
    factor.
