SUMMARY: memory for SS1+

The question:

I've got two SS1+'s with 12MB RAM each, ie 3 banks of 4 1MB SIMMs apiece.
Is there any problem with putting 4 4MB SIMMs in the empty bank?

The answer:

No problem, but you should put the higher capacity SIMMs in the first bank.

However, Paul Brunk said that he had put the 4MB SIMMs in the bank 4 and
the SS1+ still worked:

Thanks to all who responded.
