There is a chance that it will work, if your pc-66 can handle 100mhz, if it can´t the computer will not boot

your performance won't necessarily go down. it's just a matter of whether or not your pc66 ram will work at fsb100. if it does, that means that you could theoretically consider them pc100. it's just overclocking...for example, overclocking a celeron300a to celeron550 will not, of course, make your performance go down. it goes up. again, it's just a question of whether not your ram can handle it.

fyi, i have pc66 ram running at fsb112.

Thank you for reply guys.
What is the probablity that my pc66 sdram will damage at FSB of 100?

from my experience, running pc66 ram at 100 has never damaged the chip. either it just doesn't work or it isn't stable in windows. i think it is safe to try.
