I attempted this upgrade myself because iFixit labeled this as Moderate difficulty. The entire process took me seven hours from start to finish, and when I was done my computer would not turn on. I tried to do this repair myself because my local computer company wanted $400 to do this upgrade using Apple RAM, and I couldn’t afford that at the time. I had to take the iMac in to be serviced when it wouldn’t turn on, and the computer company just quoted me a price of $600 for a new logic board if it was damaged during the upgrade.
I am posting this to warn anyone else who is considering doing this upgrade to hire a certified technician. Do not go by iFixit’s difficulty rating. If you do, you may risk even greater expense if something goes wrong, like it did with my own attempt.
Perhaps iFixit should consider changing the rating on this task to Extremely Difficult, or Advanced, or LOL DON’T EVEN TRY IT to warn any other unsuspecting customers who are looking to save a little money.
This step is impossible!
