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.
I have a Dell Optiplex 760 Mini tower and the Crucial websute lists CT915213 as the 4 gig kit. In my parts stock I have a Crucial package with the CT2KIT25664AA800 part number.
The specs appear to be identical but I don't want to take a chance if there is an incompatability.
Is there anyway to cross reference these numbers? they are both crucial parts.
running W7 64 bit
have flashed latest BIOS
run the scanner
says CT5305255 would be
Your compatible MEMORY upgrades for your Esprimo Mobile X9515
(Using either tool guarantees compatibility when you order on Crucial.com)
now giving up... !!!!!
Well I can see this will get me no where..
I bought a Gateway LT40 Netbook and want to increase the RAM. The computer came with 1GB of RAM and the Crucial scan indicated that I can increase the RAM to 2GB DRAM. I was wondering what would happen if I installed 3GB or 4GB of DRAM? I know that the result would not be good but I am wondering what the unfortunate results would be? Thanks for any and all replies.
Thanks for your question.
I have looked in to this system and we are still out of stock of this part at the moment. I have contacted the US team to see when more stock will be available.
If you wanted to buy this memory from another supplier you can use the part number CT2KIT51264BF160B. That is the technical part number and is guaranteed to be compatible with your system. We only recommend that 8GB kit.
If you do have any other questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask and I would be more than happy to help.
