Why should you add more RAM to your iMac? Updated 2023


If you have noticed that your Mac is running slower than usual especially if you have been using it for a long time.  Adding more RAM to your iMac can significantly improve its performance and make it run more smoothly.


What is RAM?

RAM stands for Random Access Memory and is a type of computer memory that is used to temporarily store data.


    Why Add More RAM to Your iMac?

    The main reason why you might want to add more RAM to your iMac is to improve your computer’s performance. If you are experiencing slow loading times, freezing, or crashing, adding more RAM can help solve these issues.  If you use your computer for tasks that require a lot of memory, such as video editing or graphic design, adding more RAM can help your computer run more smoothly and efficiently.


    How important is it to pair RAM?

    A common misconception about RAM is that you can put any RAM into any slot. You can do that, but it won’t work, or it will work ineffectively. If you have four RAM slots, always buy matched pairs of RAM  for the best results.

    If you install incompatible RAM, you may end up with a non-functional computer, a blue screen of death, or reduced performance.
