    Just curious, will there be a problem if I put the mid-2015 iMac RAM (running at 1600MHz) and the late-2015 iMac RAM (running at 1833MHz) into the same computer? I have a late-2015 iMac at home, and my work has a mid-2015 iMac. I recently upgraded my iMac to 32GB, so I have two spare 2x4GB RAM. I wonder if I can simply put my spare RAM into my work computer, but I don't want to do it if it will damage the computer in any way. Any answer is appreciated.

    You can do it, but the 1867 MHz RAM will run at 1600 MHz.

    Thanks All! I just inserted the 1833MHz RAM into the mid-2015 iMac, and the computer is running fine. Thanks again.
