    Independent RDRAM channels, 1 pass through and 1 terminated on 32 Bit RIMM module.

    This was in the description of some Samsung RDRAM and I was wondering if the 1 terminated channel would mean that I wouldn't need to buy a c-rimm or does this mean I can only have one stick of ram on my motherboard?

    Just looking through your specs. Why are you running rd ram through it? RD ram comes in pairs & crimm goes in the empty slots. That's how I understand it anyway.

    Yea I'm thinkin about getting a new computer and the newer 4200 rimm Rdram doesnt need to be in pairs. And any open slots left on the mobo need to be plugged by a crimm. But I want to know if this ram has a crimm built into it, so i wont need to buy crimm.
