has anyone tried installing some kingston hyperx memory into the 27" imac?

im curious if the modules phisically fit into the memory compartment considering the have a bigger size because of the heatsinks.

thanks

I wouldn't even consider trying to put them in there. Even if they did fit, having a bigger heatsink means they are taking more space than intended, and these iMacs are VERY tight quarters and you could actually be blocking airflow, negating the point of those heatsinks.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
