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.

            My new computer manufacturer tried to sell me upgraded memory for way more. Crucial not only had what I needed but sold me the correct product, unlike many companies I contacted.

              Crucial has been around for over a decease and has always sold reliable, quality memory (RAM) in my experiences. I use their memory for gaming, casual computing, web browsing, and some work and professional reasons such as scanning and editing documents and pictures, word processing, and for entertainment such as watching movies and videos, reading e-books and listening to music and e-books, and etc. What's great about Crucial memory is that I have never had a single problem with failed or defective memory sticks, they offer a variety of choices, and even offer every visitor to their website the easy ability to select what make and model of computer they use, and select the best memory for that specific hardware. So no mistakes buying the wrong memory for your PC! I love Crucial because of their quality products and competitive prices!
