Introduction

Mettez à niveau la RAM de votre iMac et optimisez instantanément la vitesse.

Desserrez les trois vis Phillips par lesquelles la trappe d'accès est fixée en dessous de votre iMac.
  • Desserrez les trois vis Phillips par lesquelles la trappe d'accès est fixée en dessous de votre iMac.

  • Ces vis captives sont intégrées à la trappe d'accès.

  • Retirez la trappe d'accès de votre iMac.

  • Lors du remontage, fixez la trappe d'accès sans serrer, puis alignez-la sur l'ouverture du compartiment mémoire dans le boîtier extérieur de l'iMac avant de serrer les vis à fond.

I am going to put a very important comment here. Before you start this process listen to the fans on your iMac do any of them sound obviously loud (think about how quiet your iMac used to sound as a reference) If you notice one or more of them sounding substantially loud compared to the others consider locating a replacement fan prior starting this process. After all if you are already “in the neighborhood” it is a shame to do all this work only to have to disassemble your imac a couple weeks later because you realize the fan is failing. I speak from my own personal learning experience of having to disassembly my iMac 3 weeks later because the HDD was failing and apparently the moving the fan around was just enough to push it to start really under performing.

I’m not sure why it is necessary to remove the RAM. As far as I can tell, it can remain in place during this procedure.

À l'aide de vos doigts ou de la pointe d'un spudger, sortez la languette d'extraction en plastique noir de l'emplacement de la RAM.

  • Tirez sur la languette en plastique noir pour éjecter le module de RAM de son emplacement.

  • Les modules RAM sont solidement installés. Il faudra tirer dessus assez fortement pour les retirer.

  • À l'aide de vos doigts, faites glisser le module de RAM hors de l'emplacement.

  • Si nécessaire, répétez l'opération pour les autres modules de RAM.

How many 4MB cards can I install?

nowsc - Réponse

None. 4mb ram is too old to fit into any computer manufactured after like 1998.

@Brett

I suggest that you learn your unit symbols before you try to appear clever:

4mb == 4 milli bits

4MB == 4 mega bytes

nowsc was obviously meaning 4GB not 4MB, try not to be a dick.

Take care to note which way out the RAM comes - there is a notch in each RAM and it is not centered, therefore either the notch will be on the left or to the right (depending on which way up you have your iMac). This will make it easier to replace the RAM without damaging anything.

Mike Haines - Réponse

If damaged the notch inside one pair of RAM slots, is it fixable ?

Interestingly, the mid 2011 iMac 27 inch also goes to 12GB!

I originally thought I'd be upgrading to 8GB today but found 4 slots instead of 2 :-)

As long as the two front (close to the screen) slots are paired with the exact same RAM config.

For example:

Two front slots Apple 2GB chips = 4GB.

Two rear slots, Crucial Lexar 4GB chips = 8GB

Total 12GB

Hoorah no waste and more RAM, come on Lion... I'm Ready!

Be sure to really push the RAM all the way into the socket. I had a "no RAM" error beep when I first booted up my iMac after doing this. Just an extra two millimetres was all it needed to be properly installed. It can be quite tough to get in.

Hi,

I've got a 2309 and just received my two additional 4GB RAM Cards. Put them in and I can say that the speed improved (now with 16GB). Not dramatically, however, some applications did always show the little rainbow disc when my Mac was "thinking". This is now gone.

I am on OS X 10.9.5 still and the whole Mac feels as if it can "breathe" more lightly with the additional RAM.

Thanks!
