Is there any way to get more than 128 megs ram into a PowerMac 6500?
Hello everyone,

Has anyone ever tried putting 128 meg Ram chips into a PowerMac 6500? (OWC has a great sale on these right now). The 128 meg maximum memory of my old 6500 is by far its biggest limiting factor.

Yeah, I know. I love my 5400, but it's limited.

The Alchemy motherboard supports only 136M, sadly.

You can try places like macgurus and memoryx.com, but if they don't sell anything larger, that's because it's a hardware limit.

Also, you can search over at xlr8yourmac.com and see, but if it's ever been done, I've never heard of it, leading me to believe that it's a real limit, not just one driven by the technology when it was introduced.

According to the Apple Memory Guide, 136MB is the limit. 8MB soldered on and 64MB in each slot.
