Seeking for Mac simmers with a Late 2015 Retina iMac with OWC memory installed.
Yes, I’m seeking for simmers who have this iMac, preferable with OWC memory and, another preference, who have 16GB memory modules installed and then up to 64GB. The best would be when you have the iMac with OWC 64GB. I would like to hear from you your experiences when you have that iMac with 64GB.
I had such a iMac for a couple of days, but it turned out, unlucky for me, that the OWC 64GB memory wasn’t OK and that the iMac itself was returned to Apple too. Not all a big problem, but I’m still not 100 percent sure if the crashing Mac was caused by the 64GB installed memory or that the iMac itself was the problem maker. So, when you fly with such an iMac and preferable having 64GB installed, please share with me your experience.
It is much appreciated when you can and will. Looking forward to your reply.
Hi Angelique, seeing your reply has got me thinking about upping RAM. I looked on the Apple communities support page and I have to say a few people were having problems with OWC updates. I may sit on the fence for a while, taking the easy way out. Although as I said my set up runs well with what I’ve got. I will keep an eye on things and see what happens.
With all the testing and reviews you work on it’s probably more important you have better performance. Hope all goes well with the new setup.
I have received now the new OWC memory, so the old OWC has been returned and either the mem was OK or the iMac wasn’t OK. I don’t know which of the two since both the mem has been replaced as well as the iMac. The new iMac returns on Friday. I did yesterday also a search on the Web and I don’t know what to think. Although Apple doesn’t offer it, I can’t imagine that OWC which is a huge giant in the States, offers something for an iMac which could give problems. Anyway, I get the new iMac on Friday, will install first a image file with XP10 on it, then I test if with the 8GB Apple memory and see what happens. After that, I install the 64GB OWC and see what happens. When the iMac crashes completely and restarts, it’s clear to me. OWC doesn’t work. In that case, I can return the OWC mem and get my money back. Getting 4x 8GB with Apple afterwards seems a hassle, so I could then decide to install 4x8GB OWC mem. But of course, I hope that the 64GB simply works and that for some reason I had bad luck.
Hi, I have a late 2015 Retina iMac 27″ with i7 processor and 32 GB ram. ( Not OWC ) I’m not seeing any problems running XP 11 at fairly high settings. I know that you were asking about 64 GB ram, that may be the issue. I think the max ram for that model is 32 GB.
Of course I may be well off here I’m no computer expert, but I hope it helps.
Thank you for your reply and time. Apple offers no more then 32MB, but the motherboard can handle 64MB. In corporation with OWC a higher memory amount was therefore developed. I do get me new 64GB OWC memory, it seems that the first set was not correct. and causing problems, and Apple also offered a new iMac which is expected in a couple of days. As everybody is saying (OWC and the Dutch distributor), the iMac should handle it in combination with XP. Now I need to wait and see.
