    I am now finding that the 800 mhz DDR2 SDRAM from my iMac works nicely in my 2006 MacBook (it clocks it down automatically, but has otherwise been stable for the last three weeks).

    It won't (can't) be faster.

    ...is there any possible way that would not be safe for the macbook? I know it specs it down, but are there any other issues that could arise?

    ...like, is there more of a chance for it to not read the RAM one day down the road or something :confused:

    In common computer practice, no.

    With some Macs being the pickiest SOBs on the planet in terms of RAM, it could have compatibility issues, but shouldn't.

    The system bus speed is 667MHz. Anything faster will be underclocked down.
