370-3200 X7032A vs. 370-3798 X7038A

  1. Hello everbody,

    there are two eBay auctions running with the two abovementioned types
    of RAM for Sun Ultra 5/10s. What, if any, difference is there between
    them?

    Thanks in advance,
    Michael

    They are physically the same size. It's the speed...
    X7032 256Mb (2 x 370-3200 128Mb DIMM) are 60ns.
    X7038 256Mb (2 x 370-3798 128Mb DIMM) are 50ns

    These options take 2 slots, but they can be mixed in with what
    you have now.
    So you should check how the memory is made up in the systems
    - as they stand. The Ultra5 and 10 only have 4 slots, so there's not
    a lot of room for mixing/matching there. But if it's maxed out, you
    should be able to remove 2 DIMMs and fit these.
    The faster DIMMs (370-3798) are only useful if you have the
    faster procs, say, above 333MHz.

    The 440 MHz CPU requires tha faster memory.
