Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2008 8:36 AM (in response to bilbo_baggins)I have a riser A/B question. I have installed an extra 4g (2x2G) memory to my factory installed 1G. Does it matter that the 1G (2x512) pair is on Riser A and the second pair on riser b?Mac Pro 2x 2.66, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2008 3:54 PM (in response to adler_b)Do you have the 2008 Mac Pro? These come with 2GB factory installed (2 x 1GB). In any case, you should have the factory installed pair in one riser, and the new pair in another riser (slots 1 & 2 on each). It sounds as though you have installed it correctly.
As far as I'm aware, the memory installation is the same for the older and new Mac Pro's with 2 exceptions: when only 1 pair of modules are installed they should be in slots 1 of risers A & B on the new Mac Pro but in slots 1 & 2 of Riser A on the old Mac Pro; the other difference is that the new Mac Pro supports 4GB modules.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 7, 2008 8:55 AM (in response to Kevin Olson)Hi!
I have a Mac Pro (october 2006) with 2GB RAM (4x512).
I want to add 2x1GB, do you think this configuration is correct?:
Riser A 1: 1 GB (crucial)
Riser A 2: 1 GB (crucial)
Riser A 3: 512 MB (apple)
Riser A 4: 512 MB (apple)
Riser B 1: 512 MB (apple)
Riser B 2: 512 MB (apple)
Riser B 3: empty
Riser B 4: empty
Or would be better this other (as recomends this document and does not reccomend this other document)?:
Riser A 1: 1 GB
Riser A 2: 1 GB
Riser A 3: empty
Riser A 4: empty
Riser B 1: 512 MB
Riser B 2: 512 MB
Riser B 3: 512 MB
Riser B 4: 512 MB
I'm lost. Thanks in advance!Mac Pro Dual Core 2GHz 4GB, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
