How can I upgrade my RAM?

My iMac has 4 memory slots - it came with 2 standard at 2GB each. I am thinking of adding more RAM so I want to figure out if it's going to work if I just add 1x4GB and leave one slot empty in case I'd like to add more RAM or I have to fill both free slots with 2GBs?

Thanks in advance.

Fill it up with whatever you can afford. Big chips are bigly money, as Trump might say ;)

Apple recommended guidelines max out at 4 x 4 GB in each slot for a maximum of 16 GB of memory

for your machine specification. However, third-parties have discovered that it actually will support 32 GB of memory using 4 x 8 GB modules. This might shorten the lifespan of your board though. Boo!

You probably know: If not, This is the guide page how to do it.

If you can get your RAM off ifixit, return the favour:

Be careful!! The i3 CPU model can only go to 16 GB. The other factor is you need the newest system firmware (EFI) which was part of Sierra.

I bow to your deeper knowledge. Great Catch.

You really need to use two DIMM's but they don't need to be 2 GB modules. You can mix different pairs to the max of 16 GB.

So I can't leave one slot empty and just fill the other one with 4GB? I wouldn't like to add more than four.
