    UPDATE: NO, it cannot. I do not want to confuse anyone.

    Not my mini, just a Geekbench score I noticed today:

    http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/1199015

    Memory 32768 MB 1400 MHz DDR3

    That's not even the fastest RAM that mini can run, which is 1600 MHz. But it can run 32 GB? This looks like confirmation. I wonder if it is stable with 32 GB.

    Another question, I keep seeing these CPU's listed on Geekbench under the 2012 mini's:

    Intel Core i7-3770K @ 3.50 GHz
    1 processor, 4 cores, 8 threads

    There is an i7 3770k 3.50 GHz model, are people modding their mini's with an upgraded CPU?

    Its not a mini, its a hackintosh. Happens all the time. Minis use laptop CPUs soldered to the motherboard.

    Mini's since the 2009 Mini cannot have an upgraded CPU put into them. Those are likely hackintoshes. The Mini also has only two ram slots. I don't think they make 16GB sticks of DDR3 yet or ever. While the chipset can take 32GB, it physically cannot.

    can the current mbp classics theoretically support 32 gig to your knowledge?

    I believe they can. About 90% sure they can.
