204-pin SODIMM

204-pin SODIMM
DDR3 204-pin SODIMM: Approximately 2.66 in. by 1.18 in. (66 mm by 30 mm)

In short, 204-pin small outline dual inline memory modules (SODIMMs) are the form factor used to provide DDR3 memory modules for notebook computers and other small form factor computing platforms. 204-pin SODIMMs are currently available in PC3-8500 (DDR3 1066MHz) and PC3-10600 (DDR3 1333MHz) speeds.

To use DDR3 memory, your system must have both a 204-pin SODIMM slot and a chipset that supports DDR3 memory. A DDR3 SODIMM will not fit into DDR2 or DDR memory sockets. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)

SODIMMs are smaller and thinner than regular DIMMs, and the 204-pin SODIMM PCBs are always ~2.6 inches long and are usually around 1.18 inches high (though the heights can vary slightly). They consist of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The number of memory components on a 204-pin SODIMM's printed circuit board (PCB) can vary, but the PCB will always have 102 pins on the front and the back both, for a total of 204 pins. The gold pins on the bottom of the SODIMM provide the connection between the memory module and the memory socket.

      The RAM works great so far. It has made running my 5 additional displays much faster along with my programming and other needs. I went from 6GB to 16 GB with the 2 8GB sticks of RAM.

        I picked this up to put in a refurbished Thinkpad. While my intentions were great, I didn't realize the frequency was too fast for my T400. It did end up in my girlfriend's Inspiron n5050 and has greatly increased the overall performance of the machine. Would have gotten 5 stars if it hadn't been too fast!

Great service and would recommend to anyone!

                    My HP Pavilion dv6 came with a two RAM modules, 2GB and 4GB. I took out both and replaced the 2GB with this Crucial 8GB module.

                    I turned the laptop on and it's good to go. Thank you Crucial for an awesome product!
