    Not too recommended, although it may work well straight away. It may need only a little bios settings tweak or another possibility is that it will be difficult.

    If you are seeking answer for this part:

    DDR -> Double Data Rate -> 400 Mhz x 2 -> 800 Mhz effective.


    VERY IMPORTANT to install matching sticks (same brand) to avoid problems.
