I know the 2010 Mac Mini is VERY VERY picky on ram if you want to push it to 16gb. You pretty much can only get the Muskin "A" ram that is Mac mini/macbook pro 2010 specific.... BUT... how about eight gigs of ram? Is the 2010 Mac Mini more tolerant of down clocking from faster ram? I know I can get it to 10 gigs if I have an OEM stick of PC 8500 ram at 2 gigs with an 8 gig stick of 10600 ram. But can I put a matching pair of 10600 or higher DDR3 ram if I only want to go to eight gigs? Does anyone know?
