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 memory double sided? Single sided, high density modules will not work with most systems.
A:Stock are always changing so I am unable to guarantee the density of the modules. I would advise you cotnact us over the phone before placing an order. We will then be able to confirm the density of the memory module. You can us by using any of the listed contact methods: http://www.crucial.com/contact/
got a rare bluescreen 0x0000001a "Memory Management".
My Motherboard is a Gigabyte H97 HD3. (Bios F4)
The Crucial Ram is a 8GB-Kit PC3 - 12800 CL9, 1.5v
I tested both sticks (together) with memtest for 12 passes overnight (0 errors),
Does it make sense to test each on its own ?
Are these components incompatible ?
Thanks for the update. We appreciate the feedback as it might help other customers on our forum. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
my scan shows that my PC has a 1Gb and a 1mb memory modules installed. Also that it has a memory limit of 8192MB. Does this mean I cannot install, for example a 1GB module. Ideally I would install two 2gb modules at least. Any help with my options here would be helpful.
I would like to upgrade ram on my Asus P8P67 LE mobo. I've looked into the configurator on the site but i get different model numbers of that in my store, altrough the specs are the same.
Will following kits fit my mobo and which one would you recommend me? I'm using my computer for audio production and i'm not overclocking it.
