Looks like OWC sells new 16MB 30 pin SIMMs for $9.97:

I was thinking about picking up 8 of them to max out the RAM.

I was thinking about ordering some SIMMs through OWC, but they couldn't tell me if they are low-profile. Would you be able to post a photo or measure the height of a SIMM? Thanks!

I don't have my calipers here at work yet, so you get the ruler measurement :) The SIMMs I received are 7/8" tall.

Hmm...those are too tall for an SE/30. Thanks for measuring!

What other Macs require low-profile SIMMs? They don't list anything for the SE/30 specifically, but if another Mac on this list needs them, you might be in luck.

I got these SIMMs today and they fit in bank A of the SE/30. It looks like they will not in bank B (see photo - SIMMs in second bank are 20mm high), however I didn't try. The OWC SIMMs are 25.47mm in height according to calipers.
