Anyone has any clues? Thanks.
You could pull it out.
Why does it matter what "brand" it is? Buying the same brand ram (provided you can actually find it) wont make any difference.
just take them out and take a look at the sticker on the ram. ram slot is the easiest disassembling on the iMac.
First note that the brand is not necessarily the same as the manufacturer. Some brands may use more than one manufacturer.
That being said, if you go into the System Profiler and check your memory, each filled memory slot will have a manufacturer code.
A partial list of these Vendor ID Codes:
0x014F - Transcend Information
0x2C00—Micron Technology, Inc.
0x802C—Micron Technology, Inc.
0x80AD—Hynix Semiconductor Inc.
0x80CE—Samsung Electronics, Inc.
0xAD00—Hynix Semiconductor Inc.
0xCE00—Samsung Electronics, Inc.
My system has memory made by 0x802C and 0x80CE. One came with the system, the other came from Crucial. WIthout pulling the machine apart to check memory slotting, I'm fairly sure the system came with the Samsung memory and the Crucial labeled memory is made by Micron.
Edit: If it's a new Mac, it should be "Apple" memory, but as stated above, you would need to check the actual manufacturer using the System Profiler.
My imac came with Elpida. First time I seen them used on the imac.
Mine is 0x02FE...so who is the manufacturer?
According to a google search, it looks like 0x02FE is Elpida.
Thanks a lot.
