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.

        Nice and fast, and able to reach 1866mhz at 9-9-8-21
        Performs great even without heat spreaders and fits nicely under even large CPU coolers.
        great buy.

              These are sold a 1333 speed but I have 4 sticks bought seperately and both do not run at that spped just 1066. 2 sticks from [...] come up Micron brand. 2 sticks from Crucial come up Crucial brand I have a Biostar A770E3 which is supposed to run 1333 memory. Memory should run at the speed they are sold as. I also read this from other reviews after buying the memory. It seems to be a common problem. I would only recommend them due to price.

                These modules have won nearly every Tom's Hardware comparo they have been put in and are among the least expensive modules out there. They have been very reliable for me. Memory bandwidth is rarely a bottle neck these days, but if it is on your system, these will overclock just fine.

                I build dozens of systems for businesses where reliability is key.

                This memory is perfect for i5 and i7 systems because it matches the Intel recommended voltage of 1.5v which adds to the stability of the system.

                The only complaint I have would the CL9 rating which is why I buy Crucial Ballistix when performance is required.
