204-pin SODIMM


DDR3 204-pin SODIMM: Approximately 2.66 in. by 1.18 in. (66 mm by 30 mm)

In short, 204-pin small outline dual inline memory modules (SODIMMs) are the form factor used to provide DDR3 memory modules for notebook computers and other small form factor computing platforms. 204-pin SODIMMs are currently available in PC3-8500 (DDR3 1066MHz) and PC3-10600 (DDR3 1333MHz) speeds.

To use DDR3 memory, your system must have both a 204-pin SODIMM slot and a chipset that supports DDR3 memory. A DDR3 SODIMM will not fit into DDR2 or DDR memory sockets. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)

SODIMMs are smaller and thinner than regular DIMMs, and the 204-pin SODIMM PCBs are always ~2.6 inches long and are usually around 1.18 inches high (though the heights can vary slightly). They consist of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The number of memory components on a 204-pin SODIMM’s printed circuit board (PCB) can vary, but the PCB will always have 102 pins on the front and the back both, for a total of 204 pins. The gold pins on the bottom of the SODIMM provide the connection between the memory module and the memory socket.

    This product was super easy to install, my laptop (HP) recognized it instantly, and the performance speed is noticeably faster. I went from 4gb, added another 4gb, making it a total of 8gb. The crucial customer service agent was extremely polite and helpful in steering toward what product I needed for my computer.

    I was recommended a 204 pin instead of 240 pin by their website when I searched by manufacturer feature.

            I would put all of this under "Pros", but there's space there for only about ten words.

            I bought this for a Lenovo T440s. This is more about the laptop, but if you remove the tabs in the right order, the back cover comes off without breaking anything. This memory has the same timings as the memory that comes with the laptop, and installing this enabled dual channel to work automatically.

              This was the best 4gb module for my budget. Also the web site has a lot of details about the module like latency time, operating voltage etc. this is good because you can match it with your existing RAM module for good synchronization.

              Ordered RAM and received it within two days. Painless install, and was immediately recognized by Asus K55A. Increased overall system performance, including allowing gaming on previously unplayable games. Great buy, and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks Crucial!
