What type of RAM have you had luck installing and getting good results with on the 27" iMac (late 2009)? Thanks I do a lot of video editing and music production so it would be nice to have the headroom as far as that goes. I want to upgrade to 16gb. I've frozen up at 4gb a few times.

Hi Kish,

I'm new here as well as new to Mac.

I've Upgraded with the following, giving good results:

Kingston HyperX Plug n Play 8 GB Kit (2x4GB Modules) 1600MHz DDR3 SODIMM Notebook/Netbook Memory 8 Dual Channel Kit (PC3 12800) 204-Pin KHX1600C9S3P1K2/8G

Priced around $68.00 per kit via AMAZON. If you would like more details, please, let me know.

Regards,
Tim

Macs can be picky on RAM. Good idea to check your specific Mac here for RAM before purchasing.
Upgrade Apple iMac Memory & more

FWIW I buy a lot from Amazon and reccomend them. Other good sources are OWC (link above) and NewEgg

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
