Hi guys,
I have a late 2011 macbook pro, i7 2.2 Ghz and I think I can put 16gb 1600 mhz ram.
I've read that the Corsair Vengeance (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10) works.
Can someone advice which other model works with this macbook pro and which one you advice?

Thanks!

Perfect.

And to the post above, while tighter timings do help, the difference is insignificant, or non-existant, outside of benchmarks. The premium is usually never worth it.
I went with the CAS9 not only for better performance, but for better stability. I read quite a bit here about Mac OS X simply being more stable with CAS 9 vs CAS 11 memory.
