Re: Multia memory/batery questions

With regards to your message at 05:42 PM 11-16-98 -0800, Chris Albertson.

Or is there some other explanation.  I sure would not expect to use tin
simms in a gold socket normally.  Normally, the tolerances are different
and the tin/gold barrier is suceptible to galvanic corrosion.

learn first.

If you have gold sockets, then use gold lead SIMMs.
The UDBs I saw had tin sockets.
As for "parity" vs ECC RAM, it, in this case, is the same thing in this case..
