in reply to my own thread...
iMac 27 , Late 2009
ATi Radeon 4850 512MB
OS X Lion 10.7.3
Kingston 4gb PC3- 10600 204-pin SODIMM
so.. i just bought Kingston DDR3 1333 4x4gb
it is working fine right now!!! woot! and it even shows the speed at 1333..
in "about this Mac" it reads:
where as it was reading
does this mean it runs at 1333?...
guys, need your help here..
I'm running on only 2x 2gb DDR3 1066 of ram on my i7 27inch, late 2009 2.8 GHZ
what is the cost efficient way to upgrade ram? since 1333 and 1066 cost about the same now.. I was thinking to buy 4x4gb...
thanks for the help!
like i said.. i've no idea what caused this to happen. I want an explaination from apple!, furthermore, i want their solution.. even if this is a DIY fix.
I'll follow up with this when i do get their...
