[rescue] SS10 / SS20 Memory and SS10 or SS20 Clone?

I got a SS20 with two SM50 for free yesterday. It had only a single 32
MB RAM module installed. I got a bag with other 16 MB and 32 MB modules
with it. Some of the RAMs are 80 ns access time, part # 501-1785. They
are listed as "SS10 only" on http://www.sunstuff.org/hardware/memory/
but the SS20 recognizes them. Now the question is: Will they work
reliable or do they downgrade performance (RAM wait states?) or??? I was
not able to boot any OS yet, the Ultra5 is still bussy compiling

I got a SS20 clone also. It is a Tritec WS20. The PROM messages say it
is a SS20 but the connectors on the back are looking like a SS10 with an
additional 13W3 connector and it has two VSIMM slots. So I am irritated.
Is this a SS20 or a SS10 or perhaps a SS10SX?
