AFAIK, the MSV11-D takes 4116 DRAMs, but I've seen them with other
part numbers (8xxx?) You can't drop in 4164s for a couple of reasons:
refresh and voltage. The 4116 and its 4kbit predecessor are multi-voltage;
the 4164 and its descendents are +5VDC only.

I have upgraded other DEC memory boards that were half populated. You
might be able to do the same here. All of the MSV11D modules I've ever
seen were already up to 32KW.
