I used a 250gb Samsung EVO SSD and the stock 500gb 7200rpm spinner. Do y’all have any experience or have you read/heard of anyone creating a Fusion Drive with 2-ssd’s? Thanks for any replies!

Comment on Proprietary cable can put the brakes on upgrading Late ’09 iMacs. by Brian http://blog.macsales.com/2751-proprietary-cable-can-put-the-brakes-on-upgrading-late-09-imacs/comment-page-4#comment-94153 Fri, 17 Oct 2014 05:34:24 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=2751#comment-94153 Correct, but only the “heat sensor” cable/connector is different for the 3 brands of drives (Toshiba is made by Hitachi FYI, WD, and ST). So Apple has 3 different heat sensor cables. The SATA and Power cables are the same for all drives and iMac models (2005+).

The RAM is listed as “configurable” and no mention of user-accessible. Sounds like it’s soldered.

Comment on “Secret” Firmware lets Late ’08 MacBooks use 8GB. by OWC Alex http://blog.macsales.com/9102-secret-firmware-lets-late-08-macbooks-use-8gb/comment-page-7#comment-94148 Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:05:37 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=9102#comment-94148 I’m sorry to hear that the upgrade isn’t going as expected. The three beeps indicates bad RAM, however they are working individually so the modules themselves aren’t bad. I would recommend testing to see if the modules work in reverse positions if you haven’t already, and to test them separate from each other and paired with the Apple memory as well. From there it would be best to contact our tech support team for further support and resolve this. We can be reached via phone at 800-869-9152, or 815-338-8685 internationally; by chat; or by e-mail.

Comment on “Secret” Firmware lets Late ’08 MacBooks use 8GB. by Geoffroy http://blog.macsales.com/9102-secret-firmware-lets-late-08-macbooks-use-8gb/comment-page-7#comment-94146 Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:10:40 +0000 http://blog.macsales.com/?p=9102#comment-94146 I have OSX 10.9.5. I ran the various tests recommended below: EFI update -> my Mac tells me it’s not needed. SMC and PRAM don’t make a difference. In the worst case scenario, if I can add 2 more gig, that’ll still be better than 4!
Still interested in any suggestions to get 8 working…

I have OSX 10.9.5.
Which version of OSX do you have?
I need to get one 2GB of RAM to see if I can get to 6GB.

It came with 4GB in DIMM1. I bought the 2x4GB memory kit from OWC. Got it today. Tried both together and got the 3 beeps when turning it on. Separately they work just fine!
That’s a little bit of a bummer. I had done quite a bit of reading on the web and thought that going with OWC was the sure-way of getting the memory to work on the first go! Any suggestions would be welcome. Again the memory is brand new and works separately; it is clean; all shiny compared to the existing one.
Thanks in advance for your help!
