I recently gained possession of a 64MB 168 pin DIMM module mistakenly. My computer can't use it, and all other systems I've seen use 3.3V chips.
What type of computer uses the 5V variety? I don't even know if this is SDRAM or otherwise....
Thanks if anyone can help.

(Due to various reasons I can't exchange the thing.)

mg,
It is probably either FP or EDO RAM.  SDRAM uses 3.3v.
Some motherboards can be configured to select either one.

The fact that all SDRAM is 3.3V narrows it down, thanks, but I was kinda hoping someone  might know a particular brand of computer/Mother Board which uses this stuff?

Okay mg, here is an example of a mother board that supports both 3.3 and 5v DIMMs:
