Fast RAM Cas 3 at Slower RAM CAS 2 speed

    On a motherboard that has no overclocking facilities that supports RAM at a
    maximum of PC2100.. would PC3200-CAS 3 RAM run much slower than
    PC2100-CAS2.5? (FSB and multiplier changing options not available) And
    would it be safe/stable to run PC3200 at the faster CAS 2 setting?

    Shouldn't be a problem if it works ok.

    PC3200 runs cas3 at 200MHz. it should easily run cas2 at Pc2100 speed of
    133MHz.

    If you do the maths, it should be able to cope... but it will depend a lot
    on the RAM.

    133MHz/200MHz * CL3 = CL2 in my book, but that's mere theory... :p
