    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!

    I've heard a lot of people like Crucial. I just put 8 gb in my 2009 MBP.

    This is the ram I used: Kingston DDR3 1600Mhz CAS 9

    here:


    The tighter timings (CAS9 vs CAS11) will have a slightly positive effect on overall RAM performance.

    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.
