DDR3 240-pin DIMM

240-pin DDR3 DIMM
Approximately 5.25 in. by 1.18 in. (133.35 mm by 30 mm)

Crucial 240-pin DIMMs are used in DDR3 memory for desktop computers. DDR3 is the latest generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data more quickly.

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.

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 DDR3 240-pin DIMMs are currently available in PC3-8500 (DDR3 1066MHz) and PC3-10600 (DDR3 1333MHz) speeds. Additional speeds will be added as the technology becomes available.

To use DDR3 memory, your system motherboard must have 240-pin DIMM slots and a DDR3-enabled chipset. This is because a DDR3 SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard DDR2 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 DDR3 DIMMS, 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.

      I loved the fact that I could use the scan system function and know that I was buying memory that worked with my motherboard. I just plugged the memory into my board and it worked right the first time. No pain, no frustration.

          Crucial scan was critical to me, the semi computer literate. It told me exactly what I could get and what I needed.
          Delivery service was excellent.
          All suppliers should be like Crucial.

                Crucial products have always been great and this one is no exception. We needed to expand the memory on a Fujitsu workstation and it turned out to be an easy installation with great results. The workstation is now super fast.

                My i7 based Desktop had 8Gig of RAM when I built it about 9 months ago. I now added 16Gigs (2 sticks of these 8Gig modules) for a total of 24Gigs. This now allows me to simultaneously run three VMs,a video editing app (Vegas), a graphis app (Xara) and multiple browser windows and still cruise ahead happily.

                        The memory modules work well but I paid for 2 day shipping on Wednesday morning and did not receive them until Monday afternoon. The ordering process did not give an indication of the estimated arrival date to help me make the proper decision. Had I known it would arrive after the weekend I would have paid for normal shipping.
