Hi BFG,

Can you get the exact Part number of the RAM? -5 are 200MHz RAMs. I would be interested too, but 9$ a piece is expensive. I will try to get some -5 or -45, I have a little tinkerring in mind for my 6k.

The -54 replacement on my 6k board was not worth it, they would come up to 190s MHz range, just like the -6.

BFG3dfx and hank,
I have been hankering to do a ram SIZE upgrade (as well as speed) for a V5 or a V4. I would be willing to buy some rams from you if you needed to buy a crapload to get them at a good price. hopefully that will help in your quest as well. Hank, did you ever finalize the ram upgrade instructions for the few resistors and jumpers needed on the V5's? I have some pics of your mods on my hard drive, but I never did get the last little bit of info to do the mods. do either of you know if the larger ram chips are even available to us? this has been a couple of years ago now that I had started doing the footwork on this myself.

Yes the chips are out there by the thousands, easy enough to find but what is hard is to find someone to sell to a single person, i had to lie and say i was doing a school project just to get a guy to agree to sell to me but then he changed his price on me so i declined. if we had an inroads from a busness we could get an ok deal, i emailed 4 places and all responded so its possible, more ppl we have that want to chip in (for real) the easier it will be, most place have a minimum 300.00 order, some are higher. BFG

The right price for the DRAM would be more like $2.50 a piece in small quantity like 100, good luck for them selling the DRAM to someone.

Yes, well thats the problem i had Hank, at first it was 80 refurb pieces for 300.00, that was on friday, i told him id get back to him but he left early so i contacted him on monday and they were all of a sudden 9.00 a chip then, alittle price jump for what reason i dont know, so i declined cause i felt he was ripping me off. I think it was because he new he had me, if your not from a company or school they wont sell to you.


DRAM would be more like $2.50 a piece
is that for new or refurb Hank?

bfg3dfx,
email me the full part number and the phone numbers of the companies that have them in stock, I still work for a big company that buys alot of chips of all types, and I can have my purchasing person check into it. I may be able to get some sample quantities if the chip is still being manufactured (unlikely since this is old tech now).

im glad to see people havent given up on these idea's, i have a question though, have any of you ever read about the 2 v3's alienware had running together, they had it working but decided it wanst worth the work since product cycles were every 6 months, ive sent emails to alienware but they dont wanna talk about it, i look for the link again and post it, they had to do a slight hardware mod but rest was software.BFG
