IBM PC 300 needs special memory

By jbox ·
According to the IBM website, for maximum ram the IBM PC300 (type 6282)requires 2 x EDO 64MB 60ns SIMMS. IBM no longer stocks them, someone else has advised they can be custom made for $400.00 each! Does anyone have any available, or from experience, advise other alternatives that will work. Thanks for your assistance.

Try this link, if you really want to spend that much, I'll order it for you. You can get a ton of parts info by doing dogpile searches for exactly what you need. You'd be amazed what you can find

this is just the first link I followed. There are probably 1000s of others.

Are they 72 Pin SIMMs, or 168 Pin DIMMs?

According to the memory configurator at Kingston, your system uses EDO DIMMs.
They sell the 64MB DIMM for $36.

Remove any spaces from the pasted link.

You can also try www.crucial.com
and www.pny.com

I'm sure that there are others, but I prefer to trust the big boys for any "unique" RAM.
They are more apt to help you out than the web retailers, should there be any problems.
