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.

    RAM works great, but i was pretty hard pressed to find any advanced timing info. My computer lagged like crazy when i initially overclocked my CPU. It was very unstable and had issues booting. After a couple of hours of fiddling, i found the correct timing info and was able to reinstall my OS and get the machine going. I wish id have looked into the memory a little bit more before i ordered, but im a loyal Crucial customer and this is my go-to spot for memory.

    Memory is functioning well so far. I have a music system with heavy CPU and memory usage. Originally my system got touchy. I placed all 3 new sticks in the remaining 3 banks (out of 6) and the computer wouldn't boot. Then I tried taking out my original 3 sticks and placing the 3 new (4 gigs) sticks in the original banks. This didn't work (computer didn't boot). I placed the originals back in the same banks and installed the new sticks one at a time booting up after each one. It booted each time and registered all 15 gigs (3 1 gig sticks in 3 banks and 3 4 gig sticks in 3 banks) Now everything is up and running 64 bit Win 7 and two weeks in, things are good.

    However, though I saved some money on the memory, I probably should have bought the more expensive brand to match the ones already installed.
