Hi Guys I love my Mac Pro, and used to be pretty well-informed too. But that was a while ago, and rather than brave the BS I see on the interwebs, I thought I'd ask a pretty simply (but fairly important) few questions to people I think will actually know! How much RAM can I put in my Mac Pro 2008 3,1 ? SMC Version (system): 1.25f4 Boot ROM Version: MP31.006C.B05 Any real advantage of using Apple RAM? I have 10GB RAM at the moment, but sometimes the system either freezes or just resets completely, coming back with only 6GB of RAM. If I do a hard reset it always comes back at 10GB. I cleaned the contacts of the RAM and vacuumed it out a bit, and didn't seem to make a difference. Ideas? While I'm here: Standard drive is 500GB and I'm using all 4 drive bays, others for data and one for backup. Best idea for an SSD, does it need to be the full 500GB of the startup drive? Thanks in advance for your help!
