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.
184-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR SDRAM memory for desktop computers. Standard 184-pin DIMMs are available in PC1600 DDR SDRAM, PC2100 DDR SDRAM, PC2700 DDR SDRAM, and PC3200 DDR SDRAM.
To use DDR memory, your system motherboard must have 184-pin DIMM slots and a DDR-enabled chipset. A DDR SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM DIMM socket. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)
The number of black components on a 184-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 92 pins on the front and 92 pins on the back, for a total of 184. 184-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.25 inches high, though the heights can vary. While 184-pin DIMMs and 168-pin DIMMs are approximately the same size, 184-pin DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins.

Q:Is this hi density or low density.
A:These are standard low density parts.
Q:What is the difference between the recommended upgrade CT323835 1GB PC2700 DDR-333MHz and the similar CT12864Z335 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 333? Will CT12864Z335 work in the Dell 2400?
A:The part CT323835 relates the technical part of CT12864Z335 to this particular system. You can install the CT12864Z335 in your system.
Q:The scan recommended BOTH PC2700(333) and PC3200(400) RAM for my 8 yr old computer. The PC2700 memory is what I orginally thought I should get. But now I wonder if there will be any damage to the motherboard or any other part of my computer if I get the faster PC3200 memory instead? They both cost the same right now but I am cautious about any negative or disastrous effects of having faster memory installed than the computer can handle or is intended to originally use. Can you please give me the pros and cons of such an idea and specifics on whether I would actually blow up my computer or kill it if I used the PC3200 memory instead. THANK YOU!
A:Both of these speeds are fully compatible with the system. DDR memory has the ability to clock down to a slower speed should it need to - you can therefore add PC3200 no problem.
A:Use the fastest that Crucial recommends.
A:I had the same reservation. My computer was built by a friend of mine about 6 six yrs. ago. Crucial ran the scan test online and came up with the RAM that was compatible with my computer. They also have an online tech that can talk to you and answer your questions for you. I was scared to death that it was going to burn up my computer, but it works just fine.
Q:is this unit thick density or is it thin
A:This part is a standard low density module.
Q:are these high density or low?
A:That memory module part is standard low density.
Q:What is the difference between this product (CT321150) and CT12864Z335? The specs look identical.
A:These are the same parts. Part CT321150 is a specific website part number to link a part to a system. CT12864Z335 is the actual technical part number you would receive ordering CT321150.
Q:Is this (CT12864Z335) compatible with a Compaq Presario SR1230NX Desktop PC?
A:CT12864Z335 is compatible with the Compaq Presario SR1230NX Desktop PC. You can order the correct memory by following the link below:
Q:is this memory high or low density and does it make any difference?
A:That part is standard low density and is fully compatible with your model. It is only manufactured in that density.
Q:so cant you just answer whether its high or low density?????????
A:This is a low density module.
Q:I have the older Dell Dimension 2400 desktop. In researching your site It looks as though the unit can handle 2GB but most look like they install 1GB. What do you recommend? If 1GB is it better to run 1GB or 2 512GB? Thank you
A:This system will happily support 2GB over two slots with no issues.
A:My Dell 2400 came with XP and 256mb RAM. After about 10 years it was pretty slow on a lot of the more complex web sites. I upgraded with a 1GB RAM to give me 1.256 GB, and now it's as fast as I could ever want. Web sites that used to take several minutes to navigate now are practically instantaneous.
A:Tim, I also have the older Dell Dimension 2400 desktop. It is about 10 years old. The orginal came with 256mb, then I upgraded to 512mb and then purchased the crucial 1gb, so total memory is 1.5gb. With the increased memory, performance was not any better or worse. Thought I would provide you some info with my experience on increasing memory.
A:2GB has not improved the older stock system over 1GB. Though I did not try 2 512's I assumed that the transfer rate for 1 card will be faster. At 1GB memory the micro processor is still the bottleneck for upgrading speed;but oh so much better than the original 256.
A:I had a 512GB and increased it to 1GB then, thinking that 1 more gb would help I installed it and it didn't made any difference. I also have an older 2400.
A:I added 1G to 128M. I'd say add 1g to what you have.
