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.

        I bought this RAM to upgrade a new Dell Inspiron 11 3000 based on reading reviews from other users. It worked great! This RAM will not come up as an option on the Crucial search by laptop model or even at other sites, but it works exactly like the 4GB RAM that shows up in the listing. Fast shipping and easy installation. Highly recommended.

                    Its always worth adding ram. I always get my ram and data storage needs from crucial. You can never go wrong with both aspects, adding ram and buying from this company. It dramatically quickened my computer.

                        This 8 GB memory modual maxed out the memory capacity of my laptop computer. The performance was significantly improved.

                        Crucial had the best price for the 8 GB memory!

                        On the down side, I paid half more for the memory than what I paid just last December.
