Memory Upgrade 27" Late 2012 iMac
Just a quick look online reveals the following available from Crucial
Part Number: CT3650255
Module Size: 16GB kit (8GBx2)
Package: 204-pin SODIMM
Feature: DDR3 PC3-12800
Specs: DDR3 PC3-12800 • CL=11 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.35V • 1024Meg x 64 •
For £61 in the UK (or £31 for 8GB)
Now the standard iMac will ship with 8GB (2 x 4GB) so 2 slots used.
Meaning you can order in multiples of 8GB this means either 16GB or 24GB or if you want to go to 32GB you will need to remove the 2 x 4GB.
1. How is performance effected with split size memory modules, ie 2 x 4GB and 2 x 8GB? (i've heard conflicting opinions)
2. would we be able to sell the memory removed on here to other users who may like the idea of some cheaper memory to upgrade to 4 x 4GB ie 16GB total for less than the £31 above and keep all 4 modules the same size
3. Is there any dissadvantage to using different manufacturers, i.e Apple OEM supplied memory with say Crucial memory. This may also be a good reason to action item 2 above.
Thanks all and can't wait to get my first iMac
