Netra T1 AC200 DIMM's in SunBlade 100?

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Vincent Cojot, Mar 4, 2004.

  1. Hi everyone,

    I'm planning to get myself a second workstation and I have settled on
    something like an sb100 or sb150 which I will be upgrading with more RAM
    , SCSI and decent graphics. I have a 1GB kit for a Netra T1 AC200
    (2*512MB DIMMS) and I was wondering if that RAM would work in an sb100 or
    sb150.. They surely look pretty similar:

    sb100 512MB:

    netra T1 ac200:
    http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Devices/Memory/MEM_Netra_t1_200.html

    The only difference is that the sb100 RAM says: "10ns" but I was wondering
    if anyone had tried that before...

    Thanks for reading....

  2. Well the T1 uses registered ECC memory while Blade100/150 does not.
    You might be able to use the 1GB kit in your Blade 100/150 if you pull all
    existing dimms from the Blade100/150 and flip a jumper on the motherboard.

  3. Hi Fredrik,

    Thanks for the quick reply? I have no problem pulling out the existing
    RAM. Do you have more information on that jumper? Or is it documented in
    the handbook? Thanks for reading..

    You need to connect JP6 to use registered SDRAM. It's on the edge of the
    board next to the DIMM sockets.
