Ack, and here I said 5V, when your right, it is only 3.3V.

Does the Macs 7x00 and 8x00 that take this ram really require
buffered/registered, or does it just accept them? 

If I had a dimm tester that could properly report everything, I'd be a
lot more willing to just buy stuff, and sort out what it properly is, in
hopes of getting what I need.
