Can you run 24GB in Dual Channel Mode
Hi can you just add 16 GB (to the empty slots) to the stock 8 GB already in the new 27" iMac? Would it run in the full dual channel mode?

That's 2 4GB Apple sticks and 2 16GB ADATA sticks, both at CL11 (choosing RAM rated for other than CL11 may cause all sticks to run at 1333 instead of 1600 MHz).
As the other threads note - you need to install correctly to get dual channel operation. Apple makes it easy. They swap every other slot with their RAM installed. So just fill the empty slots with your additional 16 GB modules.
For example - 4GB, 8GB, 4GB, 8GB in order top to bottom. Or the reverse. The only thing to remember is to alternate the different size modules in the slots to keep that dual channel config.
