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.

My Motherboard is a Gigabyte H97 HD3. (Bios F4)
The Crucial Ram is a 8GB-Kit PC3 - 12800 CL9, 1.5v
I tested both sticks (together) with memtest for 12 passes overnight (0 errors),
Does it make sense to test each on its own ?
Are these components incompatible ?
I'm finding lots of post about putting the faster one in the slower slot (it will just perform at the slower speed) but can I go the other way? Can I use my memory from my dell optiplex 755 (5300) in my dell optiplex 360 (6400)? They are both still PC2.
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.
Dell have stated (as does Crucial) that the Dell Dimension 9200 XPS 410 (which are bascially the same) only takes 4 x 1GB modules; a maximum of 4GB)
I have read on many forums that 4 x 2GB wsill work. So I purchesd 4 x 3GB mamory modules from Crucial and they worked pefectly.
Ran my PC all weekend (48hours) with 8GB without a glitch and a good performance increase.
my scan shows that my PC has a 1Gb and a 1mb memory modules installed. Also that it has a memory limit of 8192MB. Does this mean I cannot install, for example a 1GB module. Ideally I would install two 2gb modules at least. Any help with my options here would be helpful.
