    Hi,

    the new imac 5k is going to arrive in a few days, I've gotten the stock 8gb as i intend to upgrade it myself.

    is it safe to use 2x8gb ram modules I bought via macsales for my mbp? the only difference i see are the Mhz.

    if this works, should i order another 2x8gb, since I'd have 1600mhz modules in the imac, should I buy two more identical ram sticks or mix-match with the 1867Mhz OWC offers for the imac?


    thank you very much!

    They should work fine but they will clock them all down to 1600.
