indytech says that 72-pin ram with tin leads will "reportedly" lead to corrosion and you ought to use ram with gold leads. anybody run tin ram? any problems?
cuz.. yeah. maxing my indy's ram would be fun.
Sure, I've used tin lead RAM for years in various SGI machines. There was some discussion about it a while back in comp.sys.sgi.* and no-one who used tin-lead has ever experienced any corrosion problems.
Corrosion does occour, but it took more than 5 years to happen to me, and was fixed by reseating it (however it was gold simms in a tin socket). So just rember to reseat your simms every five years or so, and your set!
