Closed Where to Buy Single-Sided Memory Tags: Memory DRAM DDR3 RAM Product Last response: April 19, 2012 1:30 AM in Memory Share box o rocks April 10, 2012 10:07:48 PM Has anyone seen the following RAM offered anywhere? 4 x 4GB DDR3 Single-sided DRAM (either 1333MHZ or 1066MHZ) More about : buy single sided memory JamieCal April 11, 2012 6:04:40 AM 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. box o rocks April 11, 2012 3:00:34 PM 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.

Did you check the qualified memory list for the motherboard? http://www.asrock.com/mb/memory.asp?Model=H61iCafe 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? box o rocks April 11, 2012 9:38:20 PM geekapproved said:That's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard.

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?
