KVR133X72C3/256 doesn't work in Miata, that's all I can say.

Hi,
Nope, it wont work. You'll need ECC, but fast page mode or EDO? ram (this is
5V ram, and had a slightly physically different socket to 3.3V SDRAM, like
the PC133/100/66 ram). I posted a question asking this ages ago, with no
reply (I have a 500/333, and I'm one stick of 16M short of the second bank).
Sun sparcstation 4 and 5's use FPM 5V parity ram, this may work, but I'm not
sure. Also, as you probably know, each bank of 4 simms must be filled with
identical density RAM (256bit wide memory bus). Good luck. Try posting to
the Netbsd Alpha mailing list (I used to be on the Decstation list, they
were an extremely helpful bunch of people), they will be able to help more.

cheers

Paul

hi

for since a while, i'm search a memory upgrade for
the alphastation 500/400.

kingston has sold them some years ago but they are not
available anymore.

i'm looking for the following memory kits:
