    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.

    4gb ram was not enough.. MBP uses a little above 1/2 of available stock 4gb ram for system stuffs.. using adobe softwares made the fans go wild and kind of heating up fast and started to lag after some hours..

    NOT ANYMORE!!! 8gb would have been more than sufficient but i decided to play it safe.. just in case future apps will use more ram..

    Easy to install.. but the only issue is unscrewing the screws.. rofl.. i started to struggle but then it was just simple like just using fingers whilst holding the screw driver PHILLIPS #00 exactly straight on top of laptop, instead of the normal way of holding it.. if you know what it mean..

    so yea i guess thats more or less it.. happy laptop..happy customer..

    I was doing well with the 8GB RAM i had. I don't know why i made this mistake and bought extra RAM. Since i upgraded to 16GB my Macbook pro with 2.4 GHz i7 CPU cant handle Microsoft word anymore. Every other app is running slow as well. I have installed fresh copies of OS and still same issue. What a bad move.

    Crucial 16gig for my MacBook Pro.

    By Gary

    Pros

    • Easy To Fit
    • Great Quality
    • Worked First Time

    Cons

    • None

    Best Uses

      I bought this product to upgrade my late 2011 MacBook Pro from the factory 4gig, although Apple only say 8gig max in their literature, Crucial say yes, so I plumbed for it.
      It was easy to fit using the online instructions and worked straight away. Not only that when you go to "About this Mac" it even tells you there is 16gig fitted.

      Problem free upgrade

      • Correct Match
      • Customised

      Cons

      Best Uses

      • Macbook Pro 15" Late 2011

      My computer had lots of life left in it, but needed more memory to run the latest operating system. The computer itself is well designed for easy upgrade but having the correct matched memory in a kit ensured a problem free upgrade.

      I also fitted a Crucial solid state drive and now I have better than ever performance.

      I particularly like the web site service for selecting the correct memory and also the tool that you can download to analyse your computer memory set up. This is a very good reason to choose Crucial.

      16GB for macbook (late 2011)

      By Dingbat

      from London

      Pros

      • Cheap
      • Fast

      Cons

      • None At The Price

      Best Uses

        I've already swapped out the old drive for a Sammy SSD which has greatly improved things, I figured the last upgrade possible would be to max out the RAM. You may notice the fans are spinning up a bit more than with 8GB but overall it's picked up the pace a bit and I'm confident will have increased the lifespan of the device. Crucial delivered quickly as usual and are still the ones to beat on price.
        Cheers again

        My 2011 MacBook Pro is flying again

        By Smitfire

        from Peterborough

        The best price from Crucial for a 16GB RAM upgrade I could find. Installation instructions were easy to follow and within 5 minutes I had gone from standard 4GB to 16GB RAM for my 2011 Apple MacBook Pro. Badly needed since upgrading to El Capitan and was running like a dog, but since the upgrade runs super fast again. Apps launch instantly and no more spinning beachball of death. Very happy, a new lease of life for my laptop.

              "16GB kit (8GBx2), 204-pin SODIMM  Upgrade for a Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2011) System".

              Micron Consumer Products Group web site reveals full specification of item, apparently with all the technical info (Three and a half decades of computer use but only into basics like volts, temperature, speed, capacity. dimensions). MacBook Pro 15" late 2011, with 2.3 GHz i7 had been running slow with processor hot. Reviews of 16GB upgrade packages seemed to indicate they provide a solution. After checking out comment on the UK available products decided the least risky purchase might be Crucial and used their "scan your system" verification to ensure any lack of compatibility was not due to my misunderstanding. Crucial UK website includes installation procedure advice. Regarding review comments about screwdriver size needed for MacBooks - PH00 & PH0 could be used - latter snug. Mac previously opened by retailer so no screws "tight".

              Installation after MacBook Pro switched off for some time. Removed base screws 3 (not 2) longer than the others. Made sure I earthed myself. Intended to follow recommendation to remove battery but label clearly indicates "do not". Bewildered initially as there seemed to be only one 2GB unit fitted - pair stacked. Removal was simple but the replacements are very slightly wider and consequently not as easy to align properly at the ends. Cutouts at each end only clear the latches when the boards are located correctly. No problems refitting the base screws.

              Initial power up OK. 8GB indicated at each location. Acclivity Monitor :-
              Before - Physical Memory 4.00GB Memory Used 3.99GB
              After restart - Physical Memory 16.00GB Memory Used 11.65GB - has reached 15.99 after long periods of no search engine shut down. NB original equipment with quicker processors are still supplied with lass RAM.

              Web pages seem a little quicker - met-office weather not as sluggish. Open Office has much quicker initial start up and presenting documents from files. Calendar initiates instantly.

              Firefox memory can be close to 4GB - explains problem with 4GB SDRAM initially installed by Apple. After switching off a couple of plugins (via Firefox - Tools - Preferences - Advanced ) and "disabling" "Use hardware acceleration when available" trimmed it back to under 1GB - which increases over time. Have given up Google Earth (with 2.2 Ghz processor).

              16GB package has addressed the previous processor incapacity. PowerrBook more comfortable to operate.
