I was at OWC site and wanted to upgrade my RAM for my iMac 24" (2007 model). I initially thought that my iMac (2007 iMac 7,1) maximum RAM was 4GB. However, to my surprise, OWC listed as 6GB as max. Curious, I went to my local Fry's electronic and pic

I was at OWC site and wanted to upgrade my RAM for my iMac 24" (2007 model). I initially thought that my iMac (2007 iMac 7,1) maximum RAM was 4GB. However, to my surprise, OWC listed as 6GB as max. Curious, I went to my local Fry's electronic and picked with a 4GB stick and wow...it worked!! My iMac is now showing 6GB! I do see a faster response. I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.4. So here are my questions: First, is it really true that my Mac is actually seeing 6GB and using all 6GB or is it just showing 6GB but using only 4GB? Also, if one slot can recognized the 4GB, what about upgrading the other slot to 4GB and getting a total of 8GB? Will this work?
Every where I read, even at crucial and apple tech support site indicated that my Mac can only use max of 4GB...but apparently I'm only 6GB now and hope to push the envelope to 8GB. Will this be possible or is my Mac showing 6GB but I'm actually using 4GB and the effect I'm seeing is only a placebo effect? Thanks for all the help guys!

Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
Apple says 4 GB, but it has long been established that both of the Mid 2007 models can use 6GB. It cannot use 8 GB, so do not waste your money.
