- DDR2 backwards compatibility question

motherboards (as DDR and previous generations were)?
Basically, is the 800 the 'upper limit' and will it be happy running at 667
or is the 800 a specification and fixed? I am expecting people to say that
its the maximum speed tested, but worth asking this before buying!
I have an ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA
(http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=4CoreDual-VSTA ), which takes up
to 2GB of 667 DDR2, but I have just found some cheap DDR2 800 sticks. Can
anyone see any compatibility issues with installing 2 matched sticks of the
following in the above board?:
PC2-6400 DDR2 800MHz
GeIL OC Certified FBGA 64MB X 8 or 128MB x 8 DDR2 Chips
Working Voltage : 1.9-2.3V
240pin, Un-buffered DDR2 DIMM
