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"

Thanks for contacting us today. A download for this information can be found here. You will need to use the Micron part number MT36KSZF2G72LDZ-1G6 (this is the Micron equivalent to CT16G3ELSLQ8160B) for finding this download on the link above. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
I'm looking at getting a new pc, and went to check what kind of ram I need, but I think the information is wrong.
The specification for the pc state is takes ram running at 1333mhz, yet the advisor tells me to get 1600mhz.
The pc is a gigabyte Brix GB-BXA8-5545.
Hope someone can help clarify.
http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ga-z87n-wifi/CT4392311 is supposed to work with that motherboard - I don't see how to get the equivilent part number to match them up with what I got (from the original post) but the specs look that same on first glance. Any thoughts crucial reps?
In a previous message I asked if CT2KIT102464BA160B 16gb (8x2) was compatible with my Dell 435t/9000 system which had 9gb RAM at the time. Dell, and the Crucial Scanner, says my system is upgradable to 24 gb of RAM. I was told the above part number was indeed compatible with my system.
I just received the above kit and my system is only recognizing 4gb in each of the two banks where I have the 8gb memory cards installed. My system is only showing 16gb instead of the 23gb it should. If it recognizes only 4gb in each bank I wonder why it shows 16gb instead 15gb?
What is happening? I have the scanner results URL listed below.
Thank you in advance
Update: Bios shows 23,552 Ram Installed, but Windows 7 64bit still shows 16gb installed.
Tried going to msconfig -boot- advanced options- I clicked the maximum memory box and tried to enter in the amount of RAM that was supposed to be there ( 23,552 ) but it wouldn't let me enter in more than (16,384). I'm trying everything I know how, plus rereading past posts. No luck so far...I'm thinking it won't recognize more than 4gb per slot for some reason.
M386B4G70BM0-YK00M is CT4496023 and MT36KSZF2G72LDZ-1G6E2A7 is CT4516895. Please let me know if there is anything else
