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:My laptop has a crucial ct1007836 1gb installed (as scan recommended) can I use this ct12864Z40B alongside to bring up to max 2gb memory recommended? thanks
A:Yes you certainly can. It will run at the same speed as your existing 1GB part.
Q:Does this work with dell and intel chipset?
A:We would need to know the exact model of Dell system you have before we could guarantee the compatibility. Please confirm your system details and we can confirm if this memory is compatible.
Q:Not mentioned, so does this memory support SPD?
Q:Can I use this (Part number: CT12864Z40B) in place of part number: CT478526 in my Compaq Presario SR1610NX Desktop PC? They appear to be the same. If not what is the difference between them?
A:They are actually the same part the only difference is that CT478526 is a Kit of two memory modules. Both are fully compatible with your system.
A:Using my external brain (Google), I was able to determine that both part numbers refer to sticks of the same configuration. It appears one is a single stick and the other a kit of two identical sticks.
Q:Is this RAM low density?
A:Yes, it is standard low density.
Q:I have an Apple Power Mac G5 dual 2.7 GHz, model G85386YURU4. Will a pair of these chips work? thanks
A:Yes. The Apple Power Mac G5 dual 2.7 GHz can support a maximum of 8GB over the 4 slots (1GB per slot) so you certainly be able to use the above mentioned memory module in your system.
I have 2x Crucial DDR4's CT8G4DFD8213 in an Asus X99 Deluxe mother board with a Intel 5820K. System boots fine but only shows 8gb of memory in the POST and in BIOS only shows 8gb in DIMM_D1
I have the other 8gb in DIMM_B1 which is the reconmmend configuration for two DIMM's.
I have tried each DIMM in DIMM_D1 to confirm the memory is OK, which it is.
I also updated the BIOS reversion after my troubles to the latest version 904 though I didn't think it would really do anything as the change logs for the BIOS update seem to address other issues and not memory issues.
So I think this memory is maybe not compatible with the new Asus X99 Deluxe mother boards.
I am sorry for the issues that you are experiencing with your memory modules. I pulled up your system and it appears that these memory modules are compatible with your system. At this point I would test each stick individually to see if it just one defective stick. You may even try running each stick individually in the system to see if the error occurs. Please contact us directly, using the information in my signature, if you are still experiencing issues.
Dell have stated (as does Crucial) that the Dell Dimension 9200 XPS 410 (which are bascially the same) only takes 4 x 1GB modules; a maximum of 4GB)
I have read on many forums that 4 x 2GB wsill work. So I purchesd 4 x 3GB mamory modules from Crucial and they worked pefectly.
Ran my PC all weekend (48hours) with 8GB without a glitch and a good performance increase.
Thank you for contacting us today. I pulled up the specs for your system. It looks like the1mb being read in the second slot is incorrect. I am guessing that it is either a 512MB or another 1GB module. You might open the case and look at the labels on both of the memory modules to be sure.
You are able to upgrade to 8GB of memory. You have slots for memory and can put a single 2GB module in each slot. You can use any of the memory upgrades that you see listed on the right hand side. You may install two 2GB memory modules and go to 4GB. However, keep in mind that if you have a 32 bit operating system you will only utilize around 3 to 3.5GB of memory. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
