Actually all the Sun machines up to the SPARCstation 1+ use 100ns (and 
slower in some cases) ram. 80ns and 70ns work fine too but, beware of 
60ns ram. I have had many problems getting away with 60ns SIMM in a few 
of the Sun machines. The going price for a 1mb 100ns 9bit SIMM seems to 
be about $15-$20 on the net so, don't waste your money on faster SIMM.
