    If so what brand and how does it run on the 2019 iMac? ie… does your unit run hot or any adverse affect?

    I ordered Samsung modules (M471A4G43MB1-CTD) from a shop specialised on memory for Mac and expect them to run just fine.

    128GB of RAM is an iMac is pretty cool.

    I remember not too long ago that there was many people making defending Apple on having a max of 16GB of RAM on the MBP, saying that there really isn't any reason to have more than that on a Mac.

    The iMac can have 128GB of RAM and the 2019 Mac Pro can have up to 1.5TB of RAM, IIRC.

    It looks like other people are using this RAM in their Macs with no issues.

    Priced @ about $160 each, this isn't a bad way to get 128GB of RAM.

    Oh hell, Apple limited RAM to 2GB on the first G4 towers, then reduced it to 1.5GB max on the later ones. You see, they were going all in on virtual memory and the supposed benefits and bla, bla, bla...

    The Dual Processor G5 was able to take 8GB RAM, a massive (and expensive) improvement.

    Running 128GB RAM on my iMac Pro. I don’t need that much but the used unit I found had that and the price was right so....

    Just to confirm: received the i9 yesterday, and the RAM works just fine.

    Baby, this thing really flies. :) Didn't put much stress to it yet and set it up freshly, but installing software was really quick, and even Safari browsing is waaaay faster - might be due to the cluttered system before, though, and not entirely up to hardware. :-D
