    Upgrading Imac to 16gb Ram

    Im looking to upgrade my Imac to the maximum amount of RAM, which I think is 16gb. Anyone have any suggestions on what RAM I should buy?

    In my opinion it's not about what ram to buy...it's about just buying ram that works/is compatible. Ram is really pretty much a commodity.

    Just go with either of these guys...and you'll be fine:

    - Crucial.com
    - OWC

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    If this is for a new 2011 onwards iMac it can handle up to 32GB if you think you need that much. My three week old iMac runs perfectly with 12GB, 4GB when new and 2 x 4GB modules from OWC for $55.00. Easy to fit just watch the video on their web site.


    Upgrade Apple iMac Memory & more
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
