You can increase the computers' DRAM to a total of 512 MB using 5-volt, 64-bit-wide, 168-pin, extended data output EDO or fast-paged mode FPM , 70 ns DIMMs. The Power Macintosh 9600 and Workgroup Server 9650 logic board has 12 DRAM DIMM slots, each with a 64-bit data bus. You can increase the computers' DRAM to a total of 768 MB using 5-volt, 64-bit-wide, 168-pin, EDO or FPM, 70 ns DIMMs. Note These...

Stationary Panel

Before you begin, remove the following Using a flat-blade screwdriver, release the six latches holding the stationary panel to the chassis. 2 Lift the chassis slightly and slide the stationary panel forward. 3 Push the light power actuator in toward the case so that it is released from the stationary panel. 4 Remove the panel from the computer.

Power Supply

Power Macintosh 9600

Before you begin, remove the following Note In the WS 9650, you must disconnect the Ultra Wide SCSI cable from the lower hard drives and release the cable from the Velcro tie wrap at this point. Carefully lay the computer on its side. Unlock the top chassis by moving the two green locking levers upward and outward. Using the green handle, gently swing the top chassis to the right until it rests firmly on the work surface. 4 Disconnect the 24-pin and 10-pin power cables from the logic board. 5...

Ultra Wide SCSI

The Workgroup Server 9650 233 and 9650 350 ship with a PCI Ultra SCSI JackHammer SE card pre-installed. This card is a high performance, single-ended, accelerated PCI to SCSI host adapter card that dramatically increases performance of SCSI devices connected to it. The JackHammer SE card is a PCI device that creates a high-speed interface between the CPU and disk drive. The JackHammer can transfer data through the Ultra SCSI-3 portion of the card at rates up to 40 MB s as allowed by the SCSI-3...

Replacement Caution

Coneccting Scsi Card Scsi Hard Disc

The DIMM is keyed so that it fits into the DIMM slot only one way. Be sure to align the notches in the DIMM with the small ribs inside the slot. Replacement Note Push down firmly and evenly on the DIMM until you hear it snap into place. The internal hard disk drive SCSI ID 0 is connected to the Ultra Wide SCSI-3 bus.

Side Access Panel

No preliminary steps are required before you begin this procedure. Carefully lay the computer on its side. Press the release button and lift up the side access panel a few inches. Slide the panel to the right and lift it off. Before replacing the side access panel, be sure to secure the Ultra Wide cable with the Velcro tie wrap on the bottom drive carrier so that the cable doesn't interfere with the fan.
