    No hay que despegar la pantalla para este tipo de reparación. Si no encuentras el compartimento entonces puede que estes mirando al imac equivocado o quizas un monitor.

    "Note that the shorter section of contacts should be on the left when installing new modules."

    Mine is flipped so the shorter section of the RAM module is on the right.

    Mine is flipped too… not a mistake, is it?

    To add:

    The RAM door is not symmetrical. When putting back the RAM door, it should flush with the back. In STEP 1 photo of the RAM door it seems the RAM door is not fully flushed and aligned.

    Does replacement RAM have to made in “matched pairs”? For example, if I add an additional 32G (2x16G) to the base 8G (2x4G) can the new 16G DIMMS go in any slots or do they need to be placed into specific “matched” slots - (slots 1 & 3 and slots 2 &4)?

    Can I “mix and match” different capacity and manufacturer RAM DIMMS or do they all need to be the same ?.

    From the Apple website for replacing ram in an iMac: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201191...

    For iMac’s released 2012 onwards there is no note about the position of ram or matching pairs.

    For iMac’s released 2009-2011 there is this note:

    i5 and i7 Quad Core iMac computers come with both top memory slots populated. These computers will not start up if only a single DIMM is installed in any bottom slot; these computers should operate normally with a single DIMM installed in any top slot.

    Core Duo iMac computers should operate normally with a single DIMM installed in any slot, top or bottom. ("Top" and "bottom" slots refer to the orientation of the slots in the pictures below. "Top" refers to the slots closest to the display; "bottom" refers to the slots closest to the stand.)

    There is a number of comments to say you should stagger the ram and make sure i=identical ram modules share the same DIMM number, not the same BANK number. How to couple RAM Modules in iMac 27?

    Does ram from iMac 27 late 2013 suit these imac or do i need to buy others?

    Bertil Woltynski - Reply

    Do you know what voltage the OEM ram that comes with the late 2014 iMac is? I just bought some Crucial RAM and was worried about not having the correct voltage and that messing up my iMac…..

    My computer is a iMac 27" 2017 RAM Retina 5k- I want to upgrade my Ram, put 1 -8gig in each free slot, talked with Apple service centre and they want $400.+ for this etc. There must be a comparable Ram on the market I could use that would be compatible to use at normal prices etc. Any recommendations. A computer tech from Apple centre recommended I try you folks.

    Thanks Len

    Hi Len,

    It so happens that we sell the exact RAM you’re looking for at a much lower cost than Apple! Before you purchase the RAM, look over this guide to get an idea on how to replace the modules.

    Arthur Shi -

    Arthur I will contact you for purchase etc.

    Arthur Shi- my ram is a 260 pin, not 204pin, it is a 27” iMac 2017 Retina 5k

    Arthur this is what I require, 2X8gb

    Thanks Len

    iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017)

    Get memory specifications for iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017), then learn how to install memory in this model.

    Number of memory slots4Base memory8GB (2 x 4GB DIMMs)Maximum memory64GB (4 x 16GB DIMMs)

    Use Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Modules (SO-DIMM) that meet all of these criteria:

    PC4-2400 (19200)

    Unbuffered

    Nonparity

    260-pin

    Sorry! This should be the right model. Unfortunately, it looks like we have low stock on the RAM.

    Arthur Shi -

    The good news is that the memory model is common and brand-agnostic, so you can find it online. Search for 8GB DDR4 2400 PC4-19244 260 pin SODIMM memory, and any results should work.

If you have two original RAM sticks, they're installed in alternating slots, so there's no need to move anything around to install two more - just use the empty slots.
