Thread: 1 Gig PC133 DIMM's In eMac
04-21-2004, 01:15 AM #1TwistGuest1 Gig PC133 DIMM's In eMac
Has anyone tried or heard of anyone trying to use 1 gig DIMM's of PC133 RAM in the just replaced 1 GHz 4x SuperDrive model eMac's?
I think that the 512 megs per slot is just one of those limitations that Apple lists that isn't really a limitation at all, it is just in the documentation to make the more expensive models look better. This said I would still rather hear of a success story first before sticking 2 1 gig DIMM's in an eMac and shorting it out or something. So if anyone has done this or seen news about someone else doing it please let me know.

As far as I know, the 2 slot 2 X 512 > 1 Gig limit still exists in eMac, simply cause motherboard modifications for broader slots make no sense

i upgraded my old 700 e mac at work to 1 gig from 640, i do not see any significant changes in speed and performance. some minor improvements and thats it. though i em not sure how 1.25 GHz model will behave. on 700 eMac i know for sure that i have the CPU to blame, its a botelneck in some cases, though it actually uses all 1gig of RAM
