    Yes, it will run on different size modules (1+2, 2+4 or 4+8) if the system supports a greater amount. However it is always best to install memory in matching pairs.


    Not all, but ots of folks have report problems with Kingston's value ram. It's best to buy from suppliers like or that test and sell memory specifically for Mac's.
