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:Having recieved the 512MB, DDR PC3200, 184-pin DIMM (2X 2GB KIT) my asus motherboard will not acknowledge the ram and will not let my machine start up?(Windows7) it also gave me a DOS screen saying "The File is possibly corrupt.The file Header checksum does not match the computed checksum"
A:Please contact support on one of the channels below:
my scan shows that my PC has a 1Gb and a 1mb memory modules installed. Also that it has a memory limit of 8192MB. Does this mean I cannot install, for example a 1GB module. Ideally I would install two 2gb modules at least. Any help with my options here would be helpful.
I would like to upgrade ram on my Asus P8P67 LE mobo. I've looked into the configurator on the site but i get different model numbers of that in my store, altrough the specs are the same.
Will following kits fit my mobo and which one would you recommend me? I'm using my computer for audio production and i'm not overclocking it.
I'm finding lots of post about putting the faster one in the slower slot (it will just perform at the slower speed) but can I go the other way? Can I use my memory from my dell optiplex 755 (5300) in my dell optiplex 360 (6400)? They are both still PC2.
Among the QVL are chips from Samsung, Micron and Apacer. Will Crucial memory
