I took the motherboard back to where I bought it, thinking it might be DOA, but they tested it and everything worked fine. The only thing I can think of (and I'm no expert) is that the RAM in my current setup is DDR2 533, but the new board only lists DDR2 667/800 in the specifications. I was under the impression that slower RAM would work, just not as well.
So, my question is... Will my slower RAM prevent my new setup from even booting?
