    So better and quicker performance from Corsair Vengeance? I think I'll go that route then.

    Prices have really shot up since a few weeks ago. Companies must know people are buying the 1600 for their macs. 2 weeks ago there were a few places that had 16gb for around $50.

    If it's a 2011 model, it's limited to 1333, so there's no point in getting the 1600. If it's a 2012, it'll run 1600 at full speed.

    I actually bought the stuff that you recommended in a post a week or 2 ago. $100 for 32GB. I was worried that it was cheap RAM, but upon getting it, it said it was tested and had a lifetime warranty, so win.

    Also, I noticed the same stuff shot up to $70 for 16GB instead of $50.
