I have a 2008 2.4GHz iMac 3GB DDR2 SDRAM 800MHz and would like to upgrade to 4GB using a 2GB stick to replace the 1GB stick. I presume 4GB is the max memory?

Does it have to be the 800MHz type for a correct fit?

It is likely that the maximum memory for your iMac is 6 (yes, 6) GB.

No. If anything, increased RAM will make a computer run cooler due to having to hit the HDD less.

And I suspect you're confusing "recommend" with "offered".
