Is CT2K8G4S24AM the same memory modules as CT10559913 ? for Apple iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch 3.4GHz)

Hi

Yesterday I received my new base IMac (Retina 5K,27-inch, 2017), 3.4 GHz intel Core i5 with 8gb of ram (2400 Mhz DDR4).

 

Earlier today I ordered 2 x 8gb ram 

Crucial 16GB Kit (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 SODIMM Memory for Mac  CT2K8G4S24AM

 

But is this the same as 

 

Crucial 8GB DDR4-2400 SODIMM Memory for Mac

 
  • Upgrade for: Apple iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch 3.4GHz Intel Core i5, 2017) 
  • Crucial part number: CT10559913

 

It looks the same, the specs are the same, but when you check compatibilty it says the 16gb(2x 8gb) is not compatible with my machine which seems odd.

 

I then rang your tech support (young lady advised) at 08:06 (Fri 24 Aug 2018), they said it was the same part number/item so will be fine - so I am slightly confused ?

 

My gut feeling is it will be fine, the website probably needs updating to keep up with constant changes/upgrades etc.

 

Comments please as my order is currently progressing?

 

Thanks in advance......

CT10559913 is CT8G4S24AM a single stick, it's not a kit such as CT2K8G4S24AM, but otherwise yes they are identical memory.
