    Thanks go out to whoever created Understanding Intel Mac RAM on our Guides area - that pointed me to a deal on OWC's site MacSales, for 16GB RAM for a Rev. H (iMac12,1 / 12,2) Intel iMac, for just $160. That deal was too good to pass up. :D

    If you're curious why I need that much RAM, I'm going to be running lots of virtual machines. Those eat RAM quick.

    16 GB for $160 would've been a great deal last year, but times, they are a-changin'!

    Nevertheless, enjoy your new RAM :)

    Read the feedback. These sticks seem to be having A LOT of issues with Intel Mac's. The manufacturer is replying to the posts suggesting different (and more expensive) ram.

    The issues people are having is with NON 2011 Macs, these $40 for (8GB) work great in the latest models.

    They are recommending these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231295&Tpk=F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ

    Which were $39.99 2 weeks ago.

    I have both but did not use the 10600 version in a Mac. It went into a Windows laptop. The 10666 version works fine in my 2010 MBP and 2009 iMac.

    Cheers,

    I've purchased G.Skill memory from Newegg and have yet to encounter any problems. I have a mid 2010 iMac.

    Lol, I love how the OP thought he had a great deal with buying RAM, and quickly made a thread to tell everyone about his awesome purchase only to be swamped by people telling him that he was ripped off :D

    They said he was overcharged not ripped off! Owc will back that ram with no questions asked you will get a replacement quickly.

    That said I purchased 10 sticks of the Gskill for 190 I had a discount code for 10 off and they tossed in 5 4gb usb sticks to boot.

    I just ordered the 10666 version for my (December) 2010 iMac (i5 quad core).

    Would the 10600 version have worked fine?
    Can I mix the 10666 and the 10600 together? (8 gb + 8 gb)
