    G4 2 gig Ram Upgrade
    Hello everyone,
    I just replaced the "non user" replaceable dimm in my iMac,
    it was very easy and I recommend it to any one else who
    surfs the web on these sleek machines.

    So, now I have 2 GB of DDR PC 2700 Ram in a machine that
    officially supports only 1 GB. The iMac is working properly as it did before.

    Upon restart the machine seems faster.

    With the previous 1.25 GB of Ram I scored a 732 on geekbench,
    and after installing the new ram and restarting the machine and
    running geek bench multiple times, I am still getting the same
    score of 732.

    The System Profile is registering the new 1 GB and I put everything back correctly. I wonder if my perceived performance boost is artificial.

    On their website, geekbench shows a similar machine that ran
    the test with the same 1.25ghz processor I have and 2 GB of ram,
    and it scored over 1000.

    Does anyone have any thoughts or similar obsession with the iMac G4? What a great computer!

    Hello? Anyone know why my geekbench score remained the same?

    Was this a snow ball Imac. Did you put heat sink grease back on the pipe thing where it comes apart from the base.
