    • You may have to press fairly hard—keep at it until the bottom of the door pops out about 0.25" from the rear of the iMac.

    • The RAM tray is locked into its upright position with two grey tabs.

    • Use your thumbs or index fingers to unlock the tray by pushing the tabs outward, away from the RAM.

    • Pull the tabs out and down, swinging the RAM tray down to a near-horizontal position.

    • Remove a stick of RAM by grabbing it with two hands and pulling straight out of the RAM tray.

    • RAM modules are keyed so that they can only be installed in the proper orientation. Note where the shorter section of contacts is when removing, and reinstalling, your RAM.

    • To install a new module, insert the module into the desired slot in the tray and press it firmly in place. Push the tray back up until it locks in place.

    • Re-insert the RAM access door back into its place.

    "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?

    What do think about extending step4 with the following:

    Please remember direction of shorter section for later installing of upgrade RAM.

    or so ...

    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.

    Hi, how many RAM slots are available. In the system overview there are 4 slots and only 2 of them are used with the current setup.

I just purchased RAM and this guide was very accurate. Thank you.

Hi guys! I have to slot full with the basic amount of RAM (2 x 4 GB), can I install 2 x 8 GB in the other two slots available? I want to upgrade to 24 GB of RAM, but I don't know if there are any problem putting together 4 GB modules with 8 GB ones. I remember an old story about possible issues... Thanks for your replies! :-)

You should be fine with pairs of equal capacity. 2 X 4 GB and 2 X 8 GB

Usually best to install in pairs of similar sizes

I just upgraded mine from 16GB to 32GB. The only problem with this guide is that it says the difficulty is moderate. What could be easier? It took me less than five minutes, and most of that was unplugging/replugging stuff before and after the actual RAM upgrade.

I used a screwdriver to push on the little button that opens the door, as I didn't have a spudger handy.

hi, do i need to use RAM specifically designed for Mac? I heard some people have issues after installing RAMs of a random brand even those are of same specs as required by Apple i.e. DDR3, 1600, 204-pin. I found online that OWC is 100% compatible with iMac, what about Kingston? Thanks!
