    just looking for the best deal on 16GbGb DDR3 1333 upgrade and I see newegg has $20 promo on faster 2x8Gb 1600Mhz kit.
    Can anybody confirm if it's going to run on MM2011? or
    or should I rather stick with single Patriot Memory Mac Series Apple 16Gb DDR3 1333Mhz PC3 from Amazon for about same money?

    I am using a Corsair Vegeance 16GB Kit (2x8GB) 1600 MHz and it runs fine on Mini 2011..

    I got this G.Skill set when it was $79 last week and it's been perfect so far. G.Skill seems to have very good QC.

    We need one huge memory topic so people can just post and reply as to which they've had success with and which they haven't.

    I have been running a pair of corsair 8gb ram sticks in my mid-2011 mini for a week, and so far they work fine. at the same time, i installed a vertex 4 256gb ssd. i timed my boot time this morning at 14 seconds.

    go for it.

    sorry about all lower case, my right arm is in a cast so one handed typing makes holding shift difficult ;-]]

    Likewise 2 x 8GB Corsair for the past 6 months and 256GB Sandisk Extreme. Runs like a scalded cat.
