Yes, the mid-2010 iMac will support 32GB in 4x8GB.

It is also recommended you purchase your RAM from reliable vendors such as Crucial and OWC (www.macsales.com).

I wouldn't recommend OWC, mainly b/c it is overpriced.
You can get 32GB 8x4 of RAM for $150.00.
Corsair 8GB DDR 1333

Yes, I have it currently installed.

Well totally incorrect about OWC, very competitive and if you shop you can get 32GB for less than $120. However if you want the best service available it's not free.

$120 for a 32GB DDR3 1333MHz PC3-10600? That's a good find.
I'm not sure what service you would need, but I could tell you NewEgg does not dissappoint.

OWC provides trade in value on your old Ram, telephone support, online chats, live 24hr tech support phone tech support and sales & how to videos. Many of those services are not available from Crucial & NewEgg. For the non tech savy these services could be valuable. By the way it's moo, this thread was answered months ago.

Just saw this thread; I tried to do a similar thing, only purchased just a 16gb upgrade from Patriot (2x8gb). Originally my mid-2010 imac had 4x2gb chips, so I replaced 2 of these with the newer ones. When I plugged machine back in and started it up, it still shows only 8gb with 4 2gb modules. Any thoughts on why this would be? (I have also opened a new thread for this issue, but thought someone on this thread might have an idea).

The new RAM was either not spec'd correctly, was not installed correctly or is defective.

NewEgg does not dissappoint.
Does Newegg offer lifetime warranty on the RAM they sell? They're a good vendor, but I don't believe they offer a warranty on RAM.
As for the price - you get what you pay for. I prefer quality RAM that's been tested and guaranteed to work on a Mac, and lifetime advance replacement warranty.
P.S. Just realized this was an older post I was replying to - did not realize that since there had been new posts today. So, just ignore.
