You need to upgrade memory in a system but you don’t have the motherboard documentation available. You open the case and notice that the board has four DIMM slots; three slots are colored yellow and one slot is black. What type of DIMM does the board likely use? How can you be sure?
Given: A motherboard has 3 yellow and 1 black colored slot.
To find: The DIMM which is used by the motherboard, and the way to verify the type of DIMM that is used.
The motherboard has 4 DIMM slots, with 3 slots of yellow color and 1 slot of black color. This suggests that the motherboard supports triple channeling, for which DDR3 DIMM is used.
To verify the type of DIMM being used, the number of notches on the pre-installed DIMMs on the motherboard can be counted. A DDR3 DIMM has an offset notch farther from the center.
