    Memory Increments for iMac
    What I'd like to know is how can I fill the two empty slots of RAM available on my iMac.

    Do I have to stick to 2 GB additional chips or can I place two x 4Gb on each so I make it 12 Gb RAM? Are any combinations possible, like 1x2GB + 1X4Gb ?

    BTW: what type of memory do I have to look for?

    This is my iMac:
    Model Name: iMac
    Model Identifier: iMac9,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 6 MB
    Memory: 4 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: IM91.008D.B08
    SMC Version (system): 1.45f0

    Max ram for your iMac is 8 gig.

    To keep things simple...just install 2 x 4gig sticks of ram = 8gig.

    Good to go...ram is maxed out.
