240-pin DIMM

240-pin DIMM for DDR2 memory
Approximately 5.25 in. by 1.18 in. (133.35 mm by 30 mm)

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.

240-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR2 SDRAM memory for desktop computers. DDR2 is a leading-edge generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data very fast.

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 DDR2 240-pin DIMMs are available in DDR2 PC2-3200 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-4200 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM, and PC2-6400 SDRAM.

To use DDR2 memory, your system motherboard must have 240-pin DIMM slots and a DDR2-enabled chipset. A DDR2 SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM 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 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. The notch in a 240-pin DDR2 DIMM is closer toward the center of the module.

Ballistix and Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMMs

Our high-performance Ballistix 240-pin DIMMs come in DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-6400 SDRAM, and DDR2 PC2-8000 SDRAM. The Ballistix Tracer illuminated, activity-indicating high-performance 240-pin DIMM comes in SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-6400 SDRAM, and DDR2 PC2-8000 SDRAM

    Couldn't ask for more. Thanks Crucial.

    Application: HP Pavilion a1730n, AMD Dual Core 4600+ Processor, Windows Vista

    Snapped into place and was immediately recognized. High load performace has a marked improvement. PC seems to boot faster.

    Way too much whiz and not enough bang

    Wanted to upgrade performance, but needed to reinstall the one chip that I had removed! then it works.

      Comments about Crucial 2GB kit (1GBx2) 240-pin DIMM DDR2 PC2-5300:

      Old Gateway 9310S with only 512Mb of ram. Great hardware but windows XP now required 2Gb RAM. Took it to a local Office supply for a tune up and they told me the max was 2Gb,and that it would cost just over $110 to buy and install. I got referred to Crucial.com, ran the scanner and now I have 4Gb's for well under what I was told at the store. Delivery was earlier than promised, install took 5 minutes from power off to reboot, and the modules have turned my machine back into a rocket.

                  I found Crucial's Web Site and ran the software to match the memory with the mother board in my computer. The memory suggested was the same type (different manufacturer )that I had purchased previously from another vendor which caused my computer to restart over and over again. I had my doubts whether Crucial's memory would work any better but I bought it as suggested and installed it and my computer is running great with absolutely no problems . Thanks again Crucial...
