Hopefully I can resolve my questions as I've been getting conflicting info. I want to upgrade to the max memory and need to know how much and what type of memory sticks I need. Also, a recommendation of where to buy it would be helpful.
Memory installed is:
Memory 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac12,2
Processor Name: Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 2.7 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 8 GB
Boot ROM Version: IM121.0047.B1F
SMC Version (system): 1.72f2
From my time on this Forum the two equally endorsed vendors are Crucial and OWC. The both carry and gaurentee compatability with their memory upgrades. They also have the 8GB sticks.
I actually saw that, but thanks. I also think I figured out my confusion as far as maximum memory. It appears it is 32GB but there are no 8GB sticks available yet. I wonder if this will be available soon and also if faster memory will be made available. But I digress - I'm also looking for the best brand. Crucial? OWC? Kingston? Thanks.
There are a lot of mixed feelings about this since OWC offers higher memory on several Apple machines than Apple officially supports. Plus they guarantee the memory and will take it back if there are problems. The down side is if you need warranty service you have to replace the memory with the original to get Apple to service the machine.
This becomes a matter of call for the user, do you go beyond the stated limit or not? What is your comfort level?
