    Will this be a problem with my PMG5? Kernal panic or anything? I bought 2700 thinking my 256 ram was 2700, but it's 3200...

    Hope I am alright, it's doing fine right now.

    Cheers.

    You'll be fine

    SDRAM is designed to be backward compatible. Faster chips can run at lower speed. So enjoy your RAM.

    Hold yer horses there, pardner!

    The ONLY Powermac G5 that is compatible with PC2700 is the original single-processor 1.6 GHz.

    You put PC2700 into a G5 Duallie or a G5 1.8 single, and you are going to have problems.

    Send those 2700s back and get 3200's

    Where did you buy them from that let you purchase PC2700 for a G5??

    Thanks

    I have a 1.6 (the little engine that does), I ordered them from crucial. Since I knew my puter was a rev a, i thought it would have the older 2700. WRONG.

    It seems to be ok, though I am on my PB at Java Hutt now...

    Cheers.
