    I ordered the new 27" iMac, fully-loaded, except RAM, I'll install 32GB later.
    I went to Crucial, as an example, to check-out RAM options. Reading the particulars...I saw two different Volt configurations; 1.35v & 1.5v. Which is the preferred RAM to use? The best deal seems to be 2 - 16GB sets (8GB x 4).

    I haven't ordered RAM in a long time...I'm out of the loop. Ever since the iPad came to market, I seldom use my current iMac or MacAir. I use the iPad for everything. Any other sites, or brands you want to recommend, please do.

    Your guidance and or opinions are appreciated.

    1.35V should be better. Less power, less heat, same performance.

    DDR3 PC3-12800 • CL=11 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.35V • 1024Meg x 64 • • Part #: CT3650282
