Note: The following computers are not 32-bit clean. They require the 32-bit System Enabler for System 7.1 or the MODE32 Version 7.5 for System 7.5.x in order to run in 32-bit mode and take advantage of more than 8 MB of physical RAM: Macintosh SE/30, II, IIx, and IIcx.

Note: Memory interleaving is supported in the Macintosh Quadra 800 and 650 computers when SIMMs are installed in pairs.
