According to the research I have done one can't combine single and dual rank ram. I am in the process of purchasing an iMac 27 inch late 2017 that comes with 8G Ram. I will be purchasing more RAM and would like to have it ready to install when I get my new machine. I have found what I want and it comes in either single or double rank. Does anyone know what rank the installed RAM for my new iMac is? Thanks!
