    Replacing RAM will not void the warranty, as Apple even includes instructions on how to do it in the iMac User Guides.

    AppleCare only covers Apple hardware. So you're fine. They just wont cover your Crucial RAM or whatever you choose to buy, which again, is fine.

    What WILL invalidate your iMac is if you manage to damage it in the process of adding RAM (this is stipulated in the AppleCare T&C). However, the chances of anyone managing to damage their iMac by installing their own RAM is very, very low - unless the person installing them is a moron.
