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:
I tried install both of the RAM together on my motherboard (Gateway RS780), but after installing it my PC refuses to boot. The PC powers up, but my screen stays completely blank.

I bought Type 1 ram today costing me a little over $51 and I must say, I am not very impressed at all.
I have 4 slots, 3 are filled with Type 2 ram.
Hi there, I wish to enquire about the compatibility of RAMs for this laptop as I am planning on upgrading it to 16GB due to my power usage.
However, in Singapore, the distributor only sells the RAM here
is this the same as
because i am not sure if
is compatible with Lenovo z400 when using the compatibility tool... its confusing for me.
I am planning to get 2 sticks of these instead of the 16GB KIT (8GB x 2) as my country doesnt seem to sell it
I'm trying to find out some more specs for this part:
Specifically, I need to know what LRDIMM Register is being used on this part, I'm hoping it's one of the InPhi GS02A ones like listed on:
But I see that Part number different from what was ordered, so it's hard for me to know.
Being able to download a copy of the SPD would be great as well.
Thank you for contacting us today. Your system actually can use 1600mhz RAM. We have done extensive testing on our end to guarantee compatibility. As long as you are purchasing from the compatibility list you will not have any issues upgrading your RAM.
In some cases manufacturers may not be able to test new memory module speeds after the system has been released, and this may be why you are not seeing this speed listed. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
