    Does anyone know a supplier for these SIMMs - preferably in the UK?
    And/or a part number for the 32Mb SIMMs which allegedly work in bank 1,
    or any specs if using third party RAM??

    I want to try to "max out" my LX and Classic.

    Many thanks,

  2. The Sparc LX takes standard 72 pin parity Simms. At least thats what I
    filled my LX with. I got mine from Ebay.

    Cost £4 a pair.

    Theres a "buy it now" offer on Ebay uk for a set of 32Mb parity simms
    (Although £10 is more than a bit expensive for a set of these things IMHO)

  3. Your best bet I think is at http://www.memoryx.net/

    Aren't those those weird word-wide parity modules? You aren't going to
    find them anywhere short of places catering to selling Sun memory...

    As far as I know, 60 ns 72-pin parity SIMMs from an old pentium peecee work
    just as well.

  5. In my experience, you can use any 36-bit SIMM that has the right number
    of pins and speed to replace a Sun 33-bit SIMM. The extra 3 bits are
    just ignored. Of course, the converse is not true. 33-bit SIMMs don't
    work worth a darn in a system that uses all 36 bits.
