every PC has a spec. 2012 PC, it seems. (carbon14 dated) lol
and memory is the most complex of all.
The rules are .
so lets read your manual together, ok?
btw Gateway died and is now ACER.com
(same with packard bell)
i looked in Acer, and zero. (is this thing a relic?) y/n no, acer search engine sux. big time, so... Im forced to use google on to acer.com
a DESKTOP PC. the spec page shows....
- DDR3 SDRAM
- Memory Speed 1333 MHz
- Memory Specification Compliance
- 16 GB max ram
- DIMM 240-pin
that was the first google hit, on spec. google is our friend.
not mine but yours. I use real manuals.
DDR3 in DIMM form factors, come in varying heights,
by RAM size and what chips are there, ok?
if you wiki dmm you see all that. full spec. on DIMM
ive never heard a tech ever in my life ask Physical size.
this perplexes me, why this is asked. ok?
the length is fixed, no variances , only height, so my wild wild guess
is you are afraid of hitting gamers grade CPU heat sink, that it?
here is the wiki page, it shows all you need to know.
the PC can not use all DMM3 made, it must be fast enough,.
the spec is here.
why not attempt to buy the DIMM at the top maker kingston.com
and see the sizes spec there, no 2 are the same tall.
some memory chips are huge or there are 2 rows tall.
that is all allowed.
30mm is common sizes. tall.
1st stick I see is 30mm tall.
there are lots of makers and lots of sizes of DIMM.
I cant review them all but you can.
acer runs a gateway site , seperate.
here is your full manual.
RTM. but , oddly does not cover ram,ddr,ddr3, or memory at ALL.
wow. what a trash PC, and maker, buy dell by HP, never acer.
that is all I can dig up,, I'd sell it !
