Sorry for the late submission.
Well I got response from

Jed Dobson;
This is incorrect, the Sun E250 has a 100 MHz system clock. The PCI bus
however does run at 33 MHz (which is pretty standard). The new CPU will
improve things. It has 2 MB of L2 cache.  Your best memory configuration

would be to fill all available slots (16) with the same size modules
will correctly interleave the memory and give you best performance.

 Moore, L. Bryan;
Well, there is actually a jumper setting that you have to change to
the upgrade.
400mhz modules will not run in 3:1 mode. Jumper J3001 needs to
be 2-3 to set 4:1 mode.
Have fun!!!


Doug Otto;
The only bus that is 33mhz on that box is the PCI bus.  The processor
clocks at 100.

THNX alot to u all for the time and effort. It really helped me.

Take care.
