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:Is this considered/termed low density or high density memory
A:All 1GB DDR 184 PIN DIMM memory modules sold by ourselves are low density and have 8 chips on each side for a total of 16 chips.
I recently purchased 2GB kit (1GBx2) DDR PC2700 Unbuffered NON-ECC 2.5V 128Meg x for an old Gateway E 4100 computer at work. I shut it off, grounded myself and replaced the manufacturer sticks, using the same seats, and couldn't get a video signal when I turned it on. I tried reseating, using the other seats, using just one stick in multiple different seats with each stick and still got nothing. I also tried to use the original memoy that I was replacing and still don't get a video signal. The keyboard powers, the motherboard beeps like it's turning on and I plugged the monitor in to another computer to make sure it wasn't an issue with that. Is there anything I might be able to do to figure out what might be the problem? Thanks!
I am buying the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer Motherboard and claims to be able to have 64GB of system memory supported, however the site does not show any DDR3 16GB 240-pin DIMM Modules being supported. I was wondering if anyone would know if crucial has any DDR3 16GB 240-pin DIMM Modules that would work with this motherboard.

Thanks for contacting us today. Did you move from a 64 bit version of Windows to a 32 bit version? A 32 bit version of Windows will only see around 3.0 to 3.5GB of memory. What is the make and model of your system? What memory modules do you have installed? The label on the memory module will have the part number displayed and will read something like CT25664BF1333. 16F, etc. Thank you in advance for this information.
I am very sorry for the issues that you have been experiencing with the memory modules that you purchased. I pulled up your system specs and they do appear to be guaranteed to be compatible with your system. If you aren't overclocking them then I would not expect them to "burn" out. The timings for these memory modules should be set to 9-9-9-24 in the BIOS. You may check this setting to make sure it is set correctly. Otherwise, it may just be bad luck with the two memory modules. It's very rare, but may happen. Please contact the vendor you purchased them with or us directly using the information in my link for a warranty replacement. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
