Default Question About Ram Speed

So here's my question: if my motherboard calls for PC 6400, can I still run the Pc 8000 ram that I have left over from another project - is it just that it will only show PC 6400? Or would it just not even run?

Thanks in advance for answering what is probably a really noobie question.

My System Specs


It will run, if you adjust the volts to match the sticks' voltage (shown on the sticker); you will also have to set the ram speed manually in the BIOS. But remember to install sticks with the same speed though.
