iMac late 2012 low voltage RAM memory and CL number
I own this iMac: iMac 21.5" 2.7 GHz i5 (Late 2012)
After having a HDD failure I'm planning on replacing it with a SSD (Samsung SSD 850 EVO 2.5" SATA III 250 GB).
Since I'm opening the iMac to replace HDD with the SSD, I would like to also upgrade my RAM. Presently I have 2x4 GB (1,5V) and want to install 2x8 GB modules.
Apple's TN on RAM Configurations used in iMac late 2012: iMac (21.5-inch and 27-inch, Late 2012): Memory specifications
In article is nothing about voltage (1,5V vs. 1,35 low voltage) and CL number.
So my questions are:
- Is it important, what number of CL is in RAM?'''
- Is it possible buy low level voltage RAM? Or dual voltage?'''
- Is it possible buy every RAM with proper specification (no matter how brand)?'''
For example, I could buy this for good price (second hand): Hynix original 8GB (1 x 8GB), 204-pin SODIMM, DDR3 PC3L-12800, 1600 MHz memory module
In the bottom of amazons link it is written that this RAM is suitable for my model.
Backward Compatible with 1.5V DDR3 Memory module: HMT41GS6BFR8A
Is it dual voltage? Kingston - HX316LS9IB/8 Module specs CL=9. Is it compatible?
It seems to be dual voltage (?)
