I have an iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2010) running on two pairs of brand new VALUESELECT Corsair memories - 4 slots, 4GB each.

OSX (both Mountain Lion and Yosemite) is detecting available memory accordingly - 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3. But it will suddenly crash, with no explicit link with an app or activity. Returned the old 2GB memories, it works just fine again.

- I wonder if anyone can point me a direction on how could I solve this thing.

So there goes the crash log:

You pretty much answered your own question, "...crashing after memory upgrade."

Remove the DIMMs one at a time until the crashing stops, then try just what you think is the bad DIMM and see if it still crashes.

It is possible that there is a bad DIMM slot unless they were all full with smaller DIMMs previously but the safe money here is one (or more) of the DIMMS is bad.

  • Thanks, Steve. I tested the memories in pairs, as they were bought in pairs and should be replaced in pairs. This cut the work in a half. Additionally, I used my previous working memories to ensure both pairs of iMac slots were working. So, after this, I will order a replacement today, it's a hardware issue indeed. Thanks very much! – Alvaro Lourenço Oct 30 '14 at 12:05
