    I just bought a 2012 Mac Mini. Here are the specs
    (2.3GHz Mac mini
    2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
    4GB memory
    1TB hard drive1
    Intel HD Graphics 4000
    OS X Mountain Lion)
    The sales person gave me Crucial part number CT2C8G3S160BM to upgrade the memory.
    Crucial website says I should use part number : CT3650349
    Which one is correct? Will the memory i have work?

    this works and it is what the sales person sold to you.

    http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-PC3-12800-204-Pin-Modules-CT2C8G3S160BM/dp/B008LTBJFW


    this is what is on the crucial website

    it will also work. it is also the same model with a different label.

    I also have the 2012 Mac Mini and I ordered this from Amazon and it works great....

    Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10)

    Best of luck, and remember not to force those little arms on the side of the memory module holder, I broke one but the memory still seated ok and I have not had any issue with it.

    give it free space to breath if you can. it does not get really hot unless you push the cpu.
