A dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The gold pins on the bottom of the DIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a DIMM are not connected to each other.
184-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR SDRAM memory for desktop computers. Standard 184-pin DIMMs are available in PC1600 DDR SDRAM, PC2100 DDR SDRAM, PC2700 DDR SDRAM, and PC3200 DDR SDRAM.
To use DDR memory, your system motherboard must have 184-pin DIMM slots and a DDR-enabled chipset. A DDR SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM DIMM socket. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)
The number of black components on a 184-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 92 pins on the front and 92 pins on the back, for a total of 184. 184-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.25 inches high, though the heights can vary. While 184-pin DIMMs and 168-pin DIMMs are approximately the same size, 184-pin DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins.

Q:Can you advise if these modules are high or low density?
A:That module is low density (16 chips).
Thanks for contacting us today. I pulled up this system information and it appears that the system will ship on October 9, 2014. I would expect that our testing on that system would occur around that time. I would recommend checking back about a week before. I am sorry for the inconvenience that may cause. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
I am trying to confirm the compatibility of a Micron Memory Module in a Dell PowerEdge R610.
The memory in question is: MT72KSZS2G72LZ-1G4M1A5BE (Micron Data Page)
I spoke to a very nice represenative on the phone from Crucial and he was able to confirm that the closest non-quad ranked memory to that part number would be CT5194475 (Crucial Data Page), and he could confirm that would work in a R610.
Can anyone tell me for sure that the Micron Part I currently have is compatible or incompatiable? I attempted to reach Micron's customer service, but it is only a web form and I have yet to recieve a response since attempting to contact them on 3 Sep 2014 and again today.
I bought a Gateway LT40 Netbook and want to increase the RAM. The computer came with 1GB of RAM and the Crucial scan indicated that I can increase the RAM to 2GB DRAM. I was wondering what would happen if I installed 3GB or 4GB of DRAM? I know that the result would not be good but I am wondering what the unfortunate results would be? Thanks for any and all replies.
I have some surplus Crucial RAM (model #CT8G3S160BM) which I was hoping to use in a Toshiba Tecra Z40-A-00K. However, when I consulted the Crucial advisor tool, it informed me that the RAM was NOT compatible.
It directed me to the CT6131084. But comparing the two products, there seems to be zero appreciable difference, besides the fact that the former is specifically branded for Macs. Can someone explain to me: is this just a glitch with the advisor, or is there a genuine reason why the CT8G3S160BM shouldn't work in the Toshiba?
