I think you will find that it is 72 pin modules in the 120. Heres crucial's ID for memory.


Right about when the pentium 200 processors came out the 168 pin memory came out. I still have a Packard-Bell 200 puter with 72 pin dimms and a Packard-Bell 233 with 168 pin dimms. I have saved probably 50 sticks of the old 72 pin dimms from striped out computers.

If I remember correctly, some P5-120 models supported SIMMs & others supported DIMMs.

If you already know that the memory you require is larger than a 72pin SIMM module, then it will use DIMMs. (PC66 SDRAM). It can take a maximum of 128MB.
