    I ended up putting 32 gb's of ram into my late 2013 imac (27" 3.2 processor) 2 16 gb packages (2 x 8's) so, 4 sticks of 8 in all, and it great! ! No problems, On-line i've seen a lot of people have had problems, and originally I had problems with a 16 GB package upgrade (2 x 8's) from another (very reputable) company, (the computer kept dying) so I was worried... but with Crucial, not only was there NO problem (at all!) but it it was significantly cheaper. So, if you want to up-grade your ram (on this computer at least) , I totally recommend. It's great! (or, it was for me) Also, on-line many say it's a waste of money, and maybe it is, I don't know....but, it seems great: now this computer is kind of top of the charts on the (free 32 bit) geekbench 3 test... it varies a little, day to day, but as high as 3393 single core, and 10613 the multi core... not the highest score, but pretty near for a 3.2 processor). My quip is that I'm now driving a Ferrari on the information-highway. Honestly, maybe it is a waste of money for most users, i don't know...myself included... but i got a good deal on this computer, and decided, "why not!".

    Several dozen attempts, procedures and well over on hour with Tech Support could not get all 4 of the memory sticks to operate in conjunction. Was left with only the ability to use 2 of the memory sticks which were barely able to improve performance beyond the memory chips that cam with my unit. Switching slots and various combinations only resulted in the ability to use just two of the addition memory regardless of the position of the slots.

        Doubled the DDR3 memory in MacBookPro (mid-2102) to 16GB. Noticed improved performance right away. Easily run multiple DTP apps including Adobe CS6/CC apps without low-memory concerns. Easy 5-min install on my MBP (need Philips #00 screwdriver). Crucial memory has delivered 6+ months trouble-free performance. All PROs, no CONs to-date. Thank you.
