RAM:

Macintosh RAM Configurations for Power Macintosh Computers. We DO NOT GUARANTEE
these listings are complete or accurate. Check other Web sources including Apple
"Applecare Knowledge Base archives" for complete information. Corrections would
be appreciated.

Macs prior to the PowerMac use either 30-pin SIMMS or 72-pin SIMMS (2K refresh), with
one exception: the Mac IIfx uses 64-pin SIMMS. The Mac 128K and 512K do
not accept additional memory. Multiple entries for a model means it may
accept various kinds of memory. Definitions of these terms are available via a Web
search.

Power Mac 4400, 7220 168-pin DIMM 3.3 V unbuffered EDO
Power Mac 5200/75 LC, 5260/100 72-pin SIMM 2K refresh
Performa 5200, 5210, 5215, 5220 72-pin SIMM 2K refresh
Performa 5260, 5300, 5300/100LC 72-pin SIMM 2K refresh
Power Mac 5400 Performa 6400, 6360 168-pin buffered EDO or FPM DIMM 5V
Power Mac 5400 Performa 6400 168-pin buffered EDO DIMM 5V
Power Mac 5500, 6500 168-pin DIMM 5V EDO
Performa 6200, 6205, 6214, 6216, 6218, 6220, 6230, 6290, 6300, 6480 72-pin SIMM 2K refresh
Power Mac 6100, Performa 6110, 6112, 6115, 6116, 6117, 6118 72-pin SIMM 4K refresh
Power Mac 7100 72-pin SIMM 4K refresh
Power Mac 7200 168-pin 5V DIMM **
Power Mac 7500 Series 168-pin 5V DIMM
Power Mac 7300, 7600 Series 168-pin 5V DIMM
Power Mac 8100 72-pin SIMM2 4K refresh
Power Mac 8500, 8600 Series 168-pin 5V DIMM
Power Mac 9500, 9600 Series 168-pin 5V DIMM
G3, G4 Macs: not listed here yet.

The Power Mac 7300, 7500, 7600, 8500, 8600, 9500, and 9600
series computers have a memory interleaving feature. Install identical pairs
of DIMMS in same-numbered slots to improve performance.

**Note: for PowerMac 7200's, EDO DIMM memory MAY DAMAGE THE MOTHERBOARD! according
to Apple. For the other DIMM models EDO memory will function but not as EDO memory. Check
Apple's document "Power Macintosh: Using FPM, EDO, SDRAM, and SGRAM", Apple
Article ID: 19456, for details.

The PowerMac 6100 will accept 64MB* 72 pin SIMMS. Other Macs which accept
72 pin SIMMS will only see 16MB of a 64MB SIMM.

This document last updated: Aug 1 2002

* Various sources have reported success with 128MB SIMMs: search for further information before purchasing.

(Thanks, Herb's Mac stuff)

An excellent page on compatibility of G4 CPU modules between different models.

From theos911's post here.

Also:
Subject: G4 processor swaps

You can use Sawtooth/Gigabit Ethernet CPUs in a Digital Audio without any changes at all. Apple System Profiler may say it is running slow but other programs can generally detect it properly. (I have personally tested this, including changing the resistors and running benches) The only issue is that you are running a really slow CPU and the bus gets dropped down to 100MHz but it is good for testing a suspect motherboard or CPU.
I have not tried in a QS, but the QS is similar enough to the DA that it *should* probably work. ymmv

Best I can do with the scanner I have on hand. Friend of mine has a really nice, really expensive DSLR that I'm sure would do a better job. This sucker is for sale if anyone is interested; still untested but I'd accept a return+refund if it didn't work.

Need link to the old Ports & Pinouts(?) document that shows the @$$end of Macs up to the day the document was created.

edit: I found it on the QS'02, the filename is mac_ports_pinouts.pdf for my copy, coul

Didn't find a link, so I may have changed the name. It's a VERY useful Apple Document.

The last I checked it had been released for non-business uses, the entire Gauge Series, IIRC. TattleTech was the same story as I recall. Download it and read the UA, if my memory isn't leaking like the proverbial sieve, it should be OK to post a link. Maybe PM Cory first?

Sharing actual, working links is what the thread's all about. Just don't post linkage to known pirate's coves. ;)

True dat. Hence the reason why I was leery of posting the link in the first place. I d/l'ed the BNHQ file and unencoded it. Read Me file doesn't say anything about the User Agreement. Will have to fire up the IIfx or the G4 and ftp into the MacBook to transfer the files over to one of those machines, then check to see if there's anything in the UA.
