Crucial 240-pin DIMMs are used in DDR3 memory for desktop computers. DDR3 is the latest generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data more quickly.
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.

Latency is slower than some, but compatability works well, Crucial has been my choice for years, I recently bought some other ram because it had a rebate. You had to manually set the ram even though it was on the manufactures compatability list, and it had issues with BSOD. Anyways, that $#!T did not work. Ordered Crucial and computer has responded without a hiccup. Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H (Motherboard) AMD PhenomII X6 1055T (Processor)
