I'm going to be getting my first iMac shortly and I'm planning on purchasing 16GB ram and installing it along with the 8GB of ram that the iMac will come with.



I was wondering if there needs to be a particular ram module that needs to be installed in a particular slot, for example to give me a dual channel function in the ram, or is this something that doesn't need to be done on the iMac and if that is the case can I just install the ram modules I purchase in any free slots?
