Apple iMac 5K: 8GB and 16GB Configurations can *ADD* Memory While Keeping the Two Modules You Already Paid For

Get the new iMac 5K at B&H Photo and see the MPG computer gear wishlist.

MPG recommends the 27" Retina 5K Display, 4.0 GHz Intel Core i7 (Skylake), 1TB Flash, 8GB memory, AMD Radeon R9 M395X GPU (4GB GDDR5).

Yesterday, MPG discussed the drop in price on the OWC 64GB memory kit for the late 2015 iMac 5K, and how you can get 64GB for only about 5% more (system cost) than 32GB.

If you bought an iMac 5K with 8GB or 16GB or memory, here’s the cool thing: Apple now configures that 8GB as 2 X 4GB or 2 X 8GB, thus leaving two memory slots open. For a long time, it was 4 X 2GB or 4 X 4GB, occupying all four slots, so whatever came with the iMac had to be removed, a bummer.

So here’s what’s cool: keep the two modules that come with the 8GB or 16GB iMac 5K, but add 2 X 8GB or 2 X 16GB:

2 X 4GB + OWC 2 X 8GB ===> 24GB
2 X 4GB + OWC 2 X 16GB ===> 40GB
2 X 8GB + OWC 2 X 8GB ===> 32GB
2 X 8GB + OWC 2 X 16GB ===> 48GB

Many if not most users do not need a full 64GB; all of these options rock in terms of not throwing away what is already paid for.
