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.
Thank you for contacting us today. It appears that the two parts are slightly different. CT6131084 is the equivalent to CT102464BF160B. The parts you have on hand, CT8G3S160BM, is a part that is Mac Specific. The two modules are very similar, however, and you should have no issues using this memory in your Tecra Z40-A-00K. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
I am trying to confirm the compatibility of a Micron Memory Module in a Dell PowerEdge R610.
The memory in question is: MT72KSZS2G72LZ-1G4M1A5BE (Micron Data Page)
I spoke to a very nice represenative on the phone from Crucial and he was able to confirm that the closest non-quad ranked memory to that part number would be CT5194475 (Crucial Data Page), and he could confirm that would work in a R610.
Can anyone tell me for sure that the Micron Part I currently have is compatible or incompatiable? I attempted to reach Micron's customer service, but it is only a web form and I have yet to recieve a response since attempting to contact them on 3 Sep 2014 and again today.
I forgot to click "Emal me when someone replies." and want to see when someone replies.
Can you link us to the exact module you purchased from Crucial?
Did you choose it because it was advised from the Crucial memory scanner?
