Late 2012 Mac Mini 2.6Ghz i7 - which RAM?
I'm having video issues with my Late 2012 Mac Mini 2.6Ghz i7. I think it may be related to RAM. I'm returning the OWC RAM.
NewEgg has 4 offerings:
Crucial Model #: CT2K8G3S160BM - $110
G.SKILL Model #: FA-1600C11D-16GSQ - $110
Corsair Model #: CMSA16GX3M2A1600C11 - $120
Mushkin Model #: 977038A - $120
All have a CAS Latency of 11. From the details listed on NewEgg, the Mushkin appears to have the best timing stats.
Any reason to pick one of the other?

Honestly, I can't speak to 2012 mac ram specifically but I can say that those are all pretty respected brands for mac ram. I've had great results with all 4 brands.
Mac Mini 5,1, 2.3 ghz, 8GB RAM, 1.5TB (HTPC)
Mac Mini 5,2, 2.5 ghz, 16GB RAM, 500 GB HD, 256 GB SSD

I searched through some other threads and found the HyperX Plug n Play 16GB (2x8GB) Kit of 2 1600MHz PC3-12800 DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 SODIMM Notebook Memory KHX16S9P1K2/16 recommended.
Ordered it for $136.91 shipped.

I Went with Kingston

I've had no problems with Kingston RAM in previous upgrades, including my 6 year old MBP. I went with what I knew, regardless of the price differential.
