Hi! I'm planning to upgrade my iMac's memory to 16GB.

I have these two options:



Is there any considerable difference? Is any of those better than the other? Any other recommendation otherwise?

Thanks in advance!

I have always used Crucial, when buying RAM an SSDs , and have never had a problem. I have never used Corsair, so could not comment on their products.

Hello and welcome.

I would go for the Crucial over the Corsair as well. OWC and Samsung make excellent RAM too.

That said, I do not recommend performing the upgrade yourself, as RAM in that model is not officially user-replaceable. It is a very involved process that requires some special tools and parts, and the removal of almost all of the internal components. The internals can easily be damaged without the proper training/experience and repair environment.

And yet, even a bozo like me can replace the RAM and battery on my old Macbook with ease.
