Probably just for spacing purposes so DDR3 and DDR4 aren't interchangeable.

i thought about that but isnt that what the hole is for? not sure why you would need 2 things to stop people putting it in the wrong slot?

This is only supposition, but would imagine it's because DDR4 is pushed in differently than older gens because of the locking clips, so maybe the "extra" bit is to actually catch so that you can push down... older gen you could put one side in first and slide in, ddr4 needs to be slotted in at the same time both sides. That's my theory anyway.
