DDR3 240-pin DIMM


Approximately 5.25 in. by 1.18 in. (133.35 mm by 30 mm)

Crucial 240-pin DIMMs are used in DDR3 memory for desktop computers. DDR3 is the latest generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data more quickly.

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.

Each 240-pin DIMM provides a 64-bit data path (72-bit for ECC or registered or Fully Buffered modules). (The Ballistix™ and Ballistix Tracer™ high-performance memory do not come in 72-bit or registered modules.) Standard DDR3 240-pin DIMMs are currently available in PC3-8500 (DDR3 1066MHz) and PC3-10600 (DDR3 1333MHz) speeds. Additional speeds will be added as the technology becomes available.

To use DDR3 memory, your system motherboard must have 240-pin DIMM slots and a DDR3-enabled chipset. This is because a DDR3 SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard DDR2 DIMM socket or a DDR DIMM socket.

The number of black components on a 240-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 120 pins on the front and 120 pins on the back, for a total of 240. 240-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.18 inches high, though the heights can vary. While 240-pin DDR3 DIMMS, 240-pin DDR2 DIMMs, 184-pin DDR DIMMs, and 168-pin DIMMs are approximately the same size, 240-pin DIMMs and 184-pin DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins.

      Apple sell RAM at extortionate prices but it's all the same at the end of the day. Crucial's RAM is exactly the same and a fraction of the price. Sent off for it 1.5 days ago and I have it installed in my system after 1 minute. No complaints.

            Comments about Crucial 2GB 240-pin DIMM DDR3 PC3-8500:

            I bought this module for my Apple Mac Pro (4-core Xeon 3500 Series) 3rd Gen. Early 2009 Desktop/PC. For some reason Crucial don't have it on the page for that machine but a customer service representative helped me find it and I can confirm it's perfectly compatible. I only needed one module, to fill out my RAM slots on a new machine as I prefer large amounts of memory over squeezing out the tiny bit more speed you can have leaving the fourth bay empty.

            The module was instantly detected by the system and hasn't missed a beat since. It took seconds to install thanks to the Mac Pro's lovely RAM tray which finally does away with most of the fiddling installing memory historically has involved. Top product.
