    Hi guys,

    rather than sacrificing my imac, I wondered if anyone has used more than the recommended 16GB Ram in the late 2009 imac model?

    Any thoughts most welcome

    It depends on which model iMac you have.
    Core 2 Duo models can use up to 16 GB RAM only, while the i5 and i7 models can, unofficially, use up to 32 GB of RAM.

    Yes, 16 GB is the maximum the system will recognize for your model iMac.
