Hey people,

 

Just wondering, can you put an DIMM ram into an UDIMM slot?  or does the ram have to stay with UDIMM?

Gday.

Just a little muddled up there, so hope you don;t mind me giving some pointers.    DIMM, UDIMM (types) refers to the stick/module you plug into the RAM slots/sockets on the MB; 

 

When compared with registered memory, conventional memory is usually referred to as unbuffered memory or unregistered memory. When manufactured as a dual in-line memory module (DIMM), a registered memory module is called an RDIMM, while unregistered memory is called UDIMM or simply DIMM.

 

There are types of MB slots, DIMM and SO-DIMM and the various types/form factors of the RAM sticks
