    A lot of people have posted which ram they have bought.

    Even links to where they bought it, but living in Sweden I can't exactly use those links.

    So, I need a bit of confirmation, on picking ram that would work.

    should I got for the following:
    I found something called
    Corsair Dominator DDR3 PC10600/1333MHz CL10 2x8GB (CMP16GX3M2A1600C10)
    link to picture:
    http://s3.pji.nu/product/standard/140/1315613.jpg

    Would it work?

    by the way, PC10600? (what is it anyway?)
    And does the CL make any difference, if you have CL10 or something less?

    I use my Mac mini for video editing mostly.

    MacMini uses the notebook memory. Corsair you show above is for a Desktop computer....

    Here is a link in the USA for memory for the Mini. Possibly look for same in your neck of the woods.

    Is this for a 2012 mini? If so it will function but you really want 1600Mhz RAM rather than 1333MHz

    The 1600Mhz RAM tends to have a latency (CL) of 11. Lower is better but it's less important than the MHz.
