    I am running the following memory sticks in my ECS PVMM2 V 5.a
    motheboard: Ultra 512MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz CL3 . Can anyone tell me if
    my motherboard supports the following CPU: CeleronĀ® D 2.93Ghz
    Processor Socket 478 Bus Speed 533MHz and will I have to buy another
    type of memory for this CPU/MB combo if I decide to get it?

    Thanks
    S

    Ram may work underclocked to DDR266. CPU should work, but you may need
    BIOS upgrade. Check manufacturers web sit for full spec.

    To my surprise, I got an email from ECS support and they said, "Your
    motherboard doesn't support Intel Celeron D processor.
    Only DDR200/266 memory can be supported by your motherboard".

    Only P4VMM2 V7.3 and higher support Celeron D and Prescott.

    >>Only DDR200/266 memory can be supported by your motherboard".<<


    This is correct. DDR--- refers to the effective operating frequency of
    the RAM, not a module specification. PC3200 is a module specification.

    Only DDR200 and DDR266 can be supported by your motherboard, though
    PC3200 will operate at both frequencies.

    Wonderful. I guess I have no options available with the current mb and
    ram.
