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:Will this dimm work in a PC? Seems that all the 2gb sticks I see are only under server memory.
I believe that there will be a 16GB (dual-ranked, DDR3) ECC UDIMM released in the future. There's no ETA on this product currently, however. I would expect there will be more demand for this product in the future as 16GB modules become more commonplace. Please let me know if you have any other questions about this type of RAM. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
I have: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL8 @1.5V UDIMM 240-Pin BLT2CP8G3D1608DT2TXRG
Trying to use with GA-Z87N-WIFI
If I use a single stick it works fine (either stick alone is good) if I use both the system won't boot. I thought based on the specs it would be fine - am I wrong or do I have a bad MOBO?
In a previous message I asked if CT2KIT102464BA160B 16gb (8x2) was compatible with my Dell 435t/9000 system which had 9gb RAM at the time. Dell, and the Crucial Scanner, says my system is upgradable to 24 gb of RAM. I was told the above part number was indeed compatible with my system.
I just received the above kit and my system is only recognizing 4gb in each of the two banks where I have the 8gb memory cards installed. My system is only showing 16gb instead of the 23gb it should. If it recognizes only 4gb in each bank I wonder why it shows 16gb instead 15gb?
What is happening? I have the scanner results URL listed below.
Thank you in advance
Thanks for your post.
I have looked in to this model for you and the maximum memory it can actually support is 2GB which is 2x1GB modules. This means your system has the maximum memory already and you won't be able to add extra memory to the system.
All our products do come with a 45 day money back period and we would be more than happy to arrange a return for you. To arrange this please visit the returns section of our website at the following link: https://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/returns
Once completed we will send you an email with a free post address to send the memory back to us for a full refund. If you would prefer to set this up over the phone then we do have a free phone UK customer support number on 0800 013 0330 or if you're calling from a mobile you can call on a reduced rate on 01355 586 100.
I'm sorry for any confusion this may have cause and if you do have any other questions at all, please let me know.
I've bought some DDR ram from crucial as an upgrade.
I have the RAM but the problem is I don't know how to install it on this machine.
I've searched the net but can find nowhere of any help, possibly because it's a fairly new all in one unit.
Anyone any ideas?
