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:will this kit run at dual channel?
A:Any matching pair of modules will run in dual channel in a system where the motherboard has a dual channel feature.
So I used the online hardware checker tool to get an extra 16g memory. Did the deed and went with what was suggested, and was shipped out 16g of PC3-14200 (ct102464bf186d) to go along with my current 16g of HyperX pnp PC3-12800H
So I eagerly plugged in, and no boot. Aftersome checks I see that the voltage for the Crucial memory is 1.35v and my HyperX is 1.5. Also, the speeds are not the same, seems the Crucial memory runs faster.
So I guess the scanning tool has mismatched me memory that won't be compatable together?
If that is the case, can I underclock or overclock one set to get them working together?

Thanks for contacting us today. We would be happy to find the correct memory for your system. What is the make and model of the system? If you are having trouble locating this information, please run our system scanner: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/systemscanner. After you run the scanner, please provide us the scan ID and we would be happy to take a look at this information. Thanks in advance!!
I am sorry for the issues that you have been experiencing with the RAM upgrade that you purchased. It appears that the memory module is incompatible with your system. When I pull up the information it appears that we are only recommending a max amount of RAM of 8GB. The RAM we are recommending can be found here: http://goo.gl/oBipMy
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Don't everybody answer att at once now..............................LOL
