Hello and welcome to the OWC Instructional Series of Videos
In this installment we’ll show you how to upgrade the memory in a Late 2015 27-inch iMac with a 5K Retina display.
We’ve already gathered our materials, shut down, and unplugged the iMac, and have placed it on a soft, static-free surface.
We’re now ready to begin.
Part One: Removing the original memory.
Place your iMac face down on a soft cloth to protect the screen. Using a nylon pry tool or other non-metal instrument, push on the small button just above the power plug until the memory bay door comes loose. You can then set the door aside.
Push outward on the two levers in the memory compartment, which will allow you to raise the memory cage. Remove your old memory if necessary by simply pulling the modules straight out of the slot.
Part Two: Installing the New Memory
The notches in the memory modules line up with pins in the memory slots. Line up the two, then slide the memory into its slot, and push down until it snaps into place. Repeat the process for other modules.
Finally, push down on the handles until the memory cage locks back into place. You can now replace the RAM access door by pushing it back into place until all the edges are flush.
You can now set your iMac upright, plug it back in, and turn it on.
