View Full Version : 16GB (4x4GB) 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - what brand to buy
February 24th, 2012, 11:10 AM
I'm going to be getting a new iMac soon, and I was just wondering if anyone has any opinions on what's the best place/brand of memory to buy if I want to upgrade to 16GB. I have a hard time believing that the apple memory is worth $600, but I also think there's differences in quality so I am hoping someone can recommend a quality aftermarket brand.
As the title says, looking for 4x4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM for a 27" iMac.

(a matter of opinion - not everyone will agree with me...)
I treat RAM as a "commodity" - I go to reputable dealers online and buy the cheapest total price (including shipping and taxes, etc).

I've just fitted some 4GB memory from Crucial. Came promptly and works well.
I'm in the UK and used http://www.crucial.co.uk I bought from them before. They were recommended to me by a guy in commercial IT.
But there is another global site http://www.crucial.com
They have a quick scanner that will tell you what you need, if you are unsure.
