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:Can you advise if these modules are high or low density?
A:That module is low density (16 chips).
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.

CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor

I installed Crucial memory modules earlier this year while I was running Windows XP. I just reformatted the hard drive and installed the Vista operating system that came with my PC. The add on modules are no longer recognized; only the factory installed memory is visable on a scan. Does this mean that the memory was compatible with XP but not Vista?
This is the second time that a memory stops working. (in 2 Weeks). New PC i'm doing.
The first time i RMA the memory, they give me another. All ok. But again, another memory, not the new one, stops working. I changed the slots and tested all combinations and have another one to RMA.
Board: Msi H97M-G43
Memory: 3x Ballistix VLP 1600 CL9 (BLS4G3D1609ES2LX0CEU)
Is this motherboard compatible with the memory ? Its possible that the motherboard is "burning" the memorys? I marqued the Slot (one blue) that the memory stops function and now i have the two black slots with the two memorys running, all ok until now. (2 days only testing).
Never changed the option "OC" at the motherboard memory option. Its all Stock
Thanks in advance.
Thank you for contacting us today. It does appear that the memory you are looking at matches the specs of the Micron part, but it has not been tested with your system. We can only guarantee these modules to be compatible with your system: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-memory-for/ASUS/x99-e-ws
However, if you do purchase that kit with us and it does not work we would be happy to refund it if you return it within a 45 day period. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
