Thanks Greenious, I was going to leave it at 1.06 as it will be dedicated Cubase system so wasn't that important. But...

As I went deeper in I uncovered one hell of a job to upgrade the ram, see attached.

Any advise on simm sockets? I thought STE's were meant to be easy to upgrade?

I'm afraid not all STEs game with sockets for TOS. Here you have mine with a 1.06 spanish version, sadly soldered to the motherboard.

Well, finally opened my STE, and found out two things; I've got the good DMA chip :) - but I have a soldered TOS... :(

RAM modules are normal DIMMs...
