At Crucial, we understand something important about Mac computers. They're intuitive and easy to work with. Your memory should be too.

Compatibility for Mac systems.
Engineered to be compatible with your Apple® system, Crucial Memory for Mac takes the guesswork out of a memory upgrade. Since Apple systems often have very specific memory requirements, including particular component densities, speeds, and SPD programming specifications, it's important to buy your memory from people who know Apple computers inside and out. With over a decade of experience manufacturing and developing memory for Apple systems, we make it easy to find memory that's been designed specifically for your system.

Reliability for Mac systems.
If you're an Apple computer user, you probably expect intuitive, reliable performance from your system. We think memory should work the same way, too. For each module we manufacture, we send it through a rigorous testing process to ensure that you're getting a reliable, high-performance memory solution. Every module that leaves our doors has been extensively tested at the component level for voltage and temperature resistances, signal integrity, and software compatibility. The result? Reliable memory that meets or exceeds Apple's own memory requirements. With the latest lead and halogen-free technology and built-in thermal sensors1 to help control your system's cooling, Crucial Memory for Mac features advanced innovations.

Support for Mac systems.
Unsure how to install memory or have an important question about your Apple system? Let our team of experts help! With a tech-savvy team that's well-versed in Apple systems, we'll provide the technical support you need—no matter how old your Mac computer gets. From phone support, videos, FAQ articles, and do-it-yourself guides, we've got the resources you need to keep your system up to speed.

Crucial—quality you can depend on.
Crucial is a trusted name when it comes to DRAM, and that's no coincidence. As a brand of Micron, one of the largest manufacturers of DRAM in the world, we work with our engineers to design, refine, test, manufacture, and support our extensive line of memory modules. With a product portfolio that includes more than 250,000 different DRAM upgrades for more than 50,000 systems, we've got one specifically designed for your Mac system. For more than a decade we've kept Mac computer owners happy with high-performance memory and outstanding customer service. No matter what type of Mac system you have, we've got a compatible solution.

Perfect for my iMac 27'' (late 2012)

By Conmob

from West Midlands

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy to fit
  • Great value

Cons

  • None

Best Uses

  • Speed

I added an extra 8gb (2 x 4gb) to my iMac 27'' i7 3.4ghz (late 2012). Crucial provide excellent advice on the correct choice and fit for your particular product. Although when I carried out a auto scan it detected a 'late 2012 iMac'. But when I manually selected the My exact IMac from the detailed list, different options where offered????? This was off putting but after reading thoroughly the tech specs of each option I found they where the same. So just a website bug.
Very easy to fit on a late 2012 27'' iMac, no tools req. 10 mins from unplugging, accessing the Ram port, reconnecting and powering up.
All in all I cannot recommend this product and company enough. Will definitely use again and recommend to all.
