PC133 memory is in the Powermac AGP now: 4X256=1GB
If I wanted to upgrade further (under Tiger it will recognize at least 1.5 GB) must PC 133 Ram be used?
I am hopeful something like (just pulling numbers out of the air) PC 2700 512 MB boards or other boards (if they have the correct form factor on the notches, pins, and such) would "clock down" to the PC 133 speeds.
Anyone have experience to share regarding "major clocking down" of memory boards in general, or for both the Powermac AGP and the IMac Trayloaders?
While I suspect carefully cutting new notches so "wrong" boards physically fit into the AGP memory slots would be fruitless ... I might be tempted to try that if anyone else has had any success re-engineering memory cards and still had the cards work in the slower bus machines, too.
[While I may only see 1/2 of the total Ram, if I found a great deal (like pulls from non-working computers or great sales at a big box store, etc.) that may not be an issue for me. The AGP has 4 slots, so 4 free/inexpensive boards at 1 GB would easily max out the AGP even if only 1/2 teh total megs were seen.]
After seeing where some big box stores had great prices on memory that did not match the PC 133 rating ... I just started to wonder what would happen trying to have the memor clock down so much, and/or modifying the boards to make them fit physically as needed.
Any information from people that may have already gone down those paths would be appreciated. Thank you.
