240-pin DIMM

240-pin DIMM for DDR2 memory" border=
Approximately 5.25 in. by 1.18 in. (133.35 mm by 30 mm)

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.

240-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR2 SDRAM memory for desktop computers. DDR2 is a leading-edge generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data very fast.

Each 240-pin DIMM provides a 64-bit data path (72-bit for ECC or registered or Fully Buffered modules). (The Ballistix™ and Ballistix Tracer™ high-performance memory do not come in 72-bit or registered modules.)

Standard DDR2 240-pin DIMMs are available in DDR2 PC2-3200 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-4200 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM, and PC2-6400 SDRAM.

To use DDR2 memory, your system motherboard must have 240-pin DIMM slots and a DDR2-enabled chipset. A DDR2 SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM DIMM socket or a DDR DIMM socket.

The number of black components on a 240-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 120 pins on the front and 120 pins on the back, for a total of 240. 240-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.18 inches high, though the heights can vary. While 240-pin DDR2 DIMMs, 184-pin DDR DIMMs, and 168-pin DIMMs are approximately the same size, 240-pin DIMMs and 184-pin DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins. The notch in a 240-pin DDR2 DIMM is closer toward the center of the module.

Ballistix and Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMMs

Our high-performance Ballistix 240-pin DIMMs come in DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-6400 SDRAM, and DDR2 PC2-8000 SDRAM. The Ballistix Tracer illuminated, activity-indicating high-performance 240-pin DIMM comes in SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-6400 SDRAM, and DDR2 PC2-8000 SDRAM

Realising that it WOULD BE BETTER TO BUY A MATCHED PAIR, the installation went well, but....my system only saw half of the increase. However, as my machine is aged, (-ish, at 7 years, with a 9 year old processor), I was not surprised. My problem was with streaming online videos that "stuttered", and the extra 50% RAM successfully stopped this! RESULT! It gives me more time to save for a complete new machine. I have used CRUCIAL once before, and as before, I was not dissappointed with the diagnosis, [...]and final result - I was warned that a matched pair would probably be better.

Having installed the ram I found that it didnt work, then I removed it and put it back in again in the same place and it worked. Now everytime I went to turn the pc on I would get a system hardware message and the machine wouldnt boot unless I removed the power cable for 5 seconds,replaced it, then switched it on and it worked.
So I exchanged the position of the new Ram with my existing Dominator crucial Ram, and this seems to have solved it.Maybe a compatability issue, although I did use the crucial ram checker!

        Following a troublefree installation the PC booted up as usual. I have always had to pause a virus scan to enable me to continue work but now it goes ahead without my noticing. Crashes are now a thing of the past. Wish I'd done this from the start!

                I'd been running a Vista PC with 512MB RAM. It was never good, but recently became so bad that I couldn't listen to music and use the internet at the same time.

                I assumed it was the RAM, but had put off upgrading for fears of difficult installation. But it was all so simple. I watched a few videos on the Crucial website, used their System Scanner to select the right RAM, then selected the best that my motherboard would take (2x1GB 8500).

                The memory was sent quickly, and the whole installation process took less than 30 minutes. It would have been even quicker if I didn't have a few cables to get out of the way before getting to the memory slots. (Installation was ever so slightly more tricky than the videos I'd seen, but only because I had to disconnect a couple of extra cables to make a clear path to the memory slots, which was no hassle).

                The computer booted first time and has been running smoothly ever since. So get on and do it yourself - it'll make your life so much simpler.

                  The Crucial PC analyser took seconds to list the correct memory upgrade required, it was ordered and was delivered in a couple of days. Took less than 2 minutes to upgrade and breath new life into an old PC used for CAD work
