    204-pin SODIMM for Mac


    In short, 204-pin small outline dual inline memory modules (SODIMMs) are the form factor used to provide DDR3 memory modules for notebook computers and other small form factor computing platforms.

    To use DDR3 memory, your system must have both a 204-pin SODIMM slot and a chipset that supports DDR3 memory. A DDR3 SODIMM will not fit into DDR2 or DDR memory sockets.

    SODIMMs are smaller and thinner than regular DIMMs, and the 204-pin SODIMM PCBs are always ~2.6 inches long and are usually around 1.18 inches high (though the heights can vary slightly). They consist of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The number of memory components on a 204-pin SODIMM's printed circuit board (PCB) can vary, but the PCB will always have 102 pins on the front and the back both, for a total of 204 pins. The gold pins on the bottom of the SODIMM provide the connection between the memory module and the memory socket.

    This is the 3rd upgrade I have done using one of Crucial's memory upgrade kits. Installation was as straightforward as before, although the initial startup after installation took a lot longer than normal, to the point I thought I had a problem. Anyway everything settled down and I haven't had any problems since.
    16Gb might be a bit of an overkill, but I sometimes run multiple sessions of Parallels and use Photoshop and video editing software, and I thought this would give me some headroom. Certainly I can run multiple sessions of Parallels, without any notable deterioration in performance and video rendering is dramatically quicker.

    I've had constant problems since installing this RAM - three beep crashes, sudden restarts, and hard crashes every other day. I was suspicious when ordering, since the mac specs say the max RAM for this machine is 8 GB. However Crucial site reassured me that it was OK to install 16 GB. Don't know whether a) I have not installed the RAM correctly (although all the RAM is being recognised and used fine when the computer is not crashing), b) have faulty RAM modules, or c) the computer really is not designed for 16 GB (in which case I was mis sold by Crucial.

    When the computer is not crashing it runs like a dream with the new RAM, but the random hard crashes every day or two are really starting to annoy me and leading to loss of work.

    Should I send the RAM back?

        Pros

        • Much Faster In Lightroom
        • Need Bigger Ssd Drive Now
        • Works Well

        Cons

        • None That I Can Find

        Best Uses

        • Lightroom
        • Photoshop

        The main reason for more memory was to speed up my mac for lightroom, which it has.
        It really does the job

          • Speed Boosting

          Considering this Mac has an official limit of 8gb ram, the 16gb upgrade works perfectly. Dead fast, fully compatible.

          • Putting In Computer

          Now my computer has the GBs (16). It goes jolly fast. Over the recommended max (8GB) but everything working well. Being a quad core 7i it might even be making use of the prodigious amounts of RAM now available. Scrolled through my rather large photo library without a pause or hesitation.
