Which RAM do I need to buy for this iMac?

Hello everyone,

I think I want to buy the new iMac 5K 2017 i7 4.2 GHz with 8GB of RAM.

I would not buy RAM directly from Apple because it is too expensive.

I would like to update myself. But, I confess that I'm having trouble finding the right RAM for this iMac.

I would like 32GB (4x8GB) in order to have the same brand of RAM on the 4 slots.

What RAMs are available on the market?

Thank you for your answers guys!

Thank for your quick replay Dan.

But I'm from Switzerland and order the RAM from OWC will be expensive with the shipping and the customs.

I would like to know if there is another RAM manufacturer (Crucial, Corsair, Kingston etc...) that will have the good RAM for this iMac. Like that I can order directly from a swiss shop.

I found this one from:

But the specs or not exactly the same as the iMac. Do you think these will still work?

Or do you have other links with compatible RAM?

Thanks a lot!

Memory specs can be a bit confusing and then the companies (or the people posting the ads on the web) don't always use the correct or complete verbiage which does make it harder still ;-{

In looking at your link for Corsair RAM on Amazon it appears to be the correct RAM. Here's a link to what Kingston is offering: Kingston Technology HyperX Impact 32GB Kit (2x16GB) 2400MHz DDR4 CL14 260-Pin SODIMM Laptop HX424S14IBK2/32
