    Will 4GB DDR2 (non ecc) modules / sticks work on PowerMac G5?
    Or The chipset limit's the modules to 2 gb?

    Has anybody tried this ?

    I think they are limited to 2GB modules as the maximum is 8x2GB. Not sure but that's my guess

    If you mean 2.0 Dual Processor (AGP) from your sig, answer is: definitely will not work. Your board not supports DDR2, only DDR RAM and max capacity of single stick is limited to 1 GB, not 2 GB. So max RAM that you could have is 8 GB.

    2GB DDR2 modules are working only in Late 2005 models (Dual Core, PCIe), and only those could be maxed out with 16 GB RAM.
