Is Ballistix BLS4G3D1609DS1S00 single or double sided?

Hi all,


I need to increase the memory on my motherboard. However, I currently have 2 x 4Gb Ballistix BLS4G3D1609DS1S00 installed and I need to know if these are single or double sided?


I have a feeling the D16 and the DS in the part number might be a give away but just need to confirm.


Also, is there a reason why this information is not given in the specifications?


Finally, if it is double sided, can anyone at Crucial recommend 4x4Gb single sided sticks for my Gigabyte H61M-D2H-USB motherboard?


Many thanks

@TheTub Thanks for contacting us today. BLS4G3D1609DS1S00 is double sided memory. The designations D16 and DS are more of a coincidence than anything and do not refer to the memory being double sided. This memory is listed as compatible with your system. Have you been experiencing issues? 


If you are wanting to purchase single sided memory we would advise purchasing CT51264BD160BJ. The "J" at the end is the designation we use for density (little black chips on the memory module).  


Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
