I've ordered a 16GB kit (8GBx2), 204-pin SODIMM  upgrade for my iMac 3.1GHz Intel Quad-Core i5 (27-inch - DDR3) iMac bought brand new in May 2012. Having had a look at the 'More Info' section of About this Mac the memory specification stated adding 2 or 4Gb modules but not two 8's. My new two new ones are going to to be registered by OSX right?


I know that this may sound like a daft question but I thought I'd better ask all the same just to be on the safe side. At present I only have the factory default of 4Gb and I know that I need to remove them and install the two new ones on the from of the memory slots nearest the screen as 16Gb is the max RAM that can be installed.


Thanks in advance...

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
