I am looking to upgrade my iMac 27" Late 2013 to 16GB RAM total. It currently has, 2x4GB (apple factory installed) and want to add another 8GB.
Should I go for 2x4GB - Crucial 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB) DDR3L-1600 SODIMM Memory for Mac
Should U go for 1x8GB - Crucial 8GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMM Memory for Mac
Read about Dual channel etc, and people suggesting 2x4GB, but 1x8GB gives me option to upgrade more in the future.

@subrat Thanks for contacting us today. I pulled up your system specs and it looks like your system does not run in dual channel. Installing a pair would have no advantage over the pair of modules. It would be best and cheapest to install a single 8GB memory module in your system instead of two 4GB modules. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
