I found an article on Macworld that lists a bunch of RAM caveats for the Pro, though a lot of them involve the maxed-out install. But there's this:
Quote:
The Mac Pro ships with 1GB of RAM, in the form of two 512MB modules. But those arenít just any old memory chips. For the first time, Apple is using Fully Buffered DIMMS, or FB-DIMMs.
And this:
Quote:
With all third-party RAM, itís best to purchase modules that specifically support your system. And in the case of the Mac Pro, thatís not just a recommendationóitís a requirement. Apple cautions that installing FB-DIMMs that donít have sufficient heat sinks can cause louder fans and slower memory chips. Itís also a good idea to buy RAM that comes with a lifetime warranty, in case of any problems.
