    A friend of mine has an iMac13,2 with 2 x 4GB RAM installed (PC3-12800 1600MHz). I have two 4GB sticks laying around that are PC10600 1333MHz DDR3. Can I pop those two sticks in his last two slots? The RAM I have is from OWC and it says that the OWC1333DDR3S4GB sticks are only compatible with iMac12,2 and iMac11,3.

    So I know my sticks aren't officially compatible with iMac13,2, but could it work anyway, albeit slower, or not at all?

    It should work, but all the RAM will run at 1333 MHz.

    OK, thanks. That's what I had hoped for! :)
