    PC2700 is the "slowest" memory you can use in that machine.

    Anything slower won't work in a Mac, since the Macs use the SPD EEPROM and would recognize that it is too slow (I think).

    You may be able to get away with this type of overclocking in a PC, sometimes, but not in the Macs usually.

    thanks for the help. im not looking for overclocking really. i just want to have the extra 512 ram without giving it away to my family, who wont really put it to use.
