Where to Buy Single-Sided Memory

Has anyone seen the following RAM offered anywhere?

4 x 4GB DDR3 Single-sided DRAM (either 1333MHZ or 1066MHZ)

  1. I'm pretty sure that all Dual-Data-Rate (DDR) RAM modules are DIMM's, which stands for Dual-Inline-Memory-Module.

    This means there are micro-chips on both sides of the stick, hence it is not single-sided.

    This is part of the DDR standard, so even for small form factor modules, they are not produce (or compatible) in a 'single-sided' form.

    Also, just a note, different spec ram is not backwards and forwards compatible.

    I.e. DDR3 RAM can not be used in a MOBO which supports DDR2 RAM, and DDR2 RAM cannot be used in a MOBO which supports DDR3 RAM.
  2. I pretty much knew that, but I'm looking for 4 sticks (16GB) of single-sided RAM because my board doesn't allow populating all 4 slots with double-sided RAM.
  3. ....and what board would that be?? Never heard any such thing since 2000 when we were using high density SDRAM.

    That would be this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157246
    (ASRock H61ICAFE)
  5. That's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard.

    Did you check the qualified memory list for the motherboard?

    I mean who needs 4 dimm slots on a H61 anyways? I didn't know they even made H61's with 4 dimm slots.

    Why do you need 16gb of ram?

    Yes, I checked. There is no single-sided combination of 4 sticks totaling 16GB listed on the QVL. Yet the board states that it will accept 16GB.

    I don't need 16GB. I just wanted 16GB. But from what I'm learning, the H61 chip set was never designed to supply more than 2 DIMM slots. So maybe I'm out of luck?

    Yeah I mean I doubt you ever use 6GB, so 16GB is a complete waste anyways.
