Can you use a 1333FSB CPU on a 1066 / 800 mobo?

I just bought an engineering sample e8300. It has a 1333 FSB. My mobo specs say 1066 / 800. Will it work? Will it be underclocked?


The mobo is a Gigabyte GA-945gcm-s2c.


Same question about RAM - I bought DDR800 ram, and the mobo takes 667. Is underclocking teh RAM a problem.


After decades of Mac use, I'm a complete noob to all of this PC goo.


Any insights will be greatly appreciated.


Edit: a quick googling shows that I may have just hosed myself - my mobo does not appear to officially support a 45nm processor, but a beta bios might:
