Nope, I haven't swapped ram between computers at all, just the two different sets that have been exclusively in the super-panicky one.
Are we still dealing with kernel panics on THREE iMac's...or has the situation changed? As already mentioned...getting KP's on three iMac's at roughly the same time is very, very, very unusual...and the only common thread would be have to be a software issue.
If we're talking KP's on just one computer...then we may be able to troubleshoot a bit further. But honestly with most Macintosh computers with KP's...once you get past troubleshooting ram, software, hard drives...there's not much else that can be done. KP's can be caused by something going bad on the logic board (video hardware for example)...but if this is the case...not much can be done...other than to replace the logic board. Which in most cases is not financially a good idea.
This is why having KP's on three iMac's happen almost simultaneously (roughly in the same time period)...is almost impossible (unless it's due to the same troublesome software being installed on all three computers). Having three hardware failures (three iMac's) at almost the same time causing kernel panics, is statistically astronomically high.
