• Downclocking RAM with SPD

    Here is how it all began: I decided to upgrade my laptop memory. However, (as usual) I bought the wrong thing because I read after I buy something, not before. I needed two 1066MHz DDR3 RAM sticks, but I bought faster ones, @1333MHz, assuming the motherboard would run them at the slower speed. Which turned out to be wrong, making my machine very unstable: it was able to boot, but there were lots of kernel panics, program crashes, etc.
