    I was hoping people could post a list of reliable brands of memory since there is so much contradicting info.

    Specifically for Mac Mini i7. Recommended latency and other specs & do/don'ts for those of us who don't really know.

    I'm in Japan and without ordering from overseas the brands here seem a bit rare. Found only in the UK or north American stores like NewEgg with no reviews because no one has heard of the brands.

    For example. Amazon Japan - Silicon Power modules

    Also found at NewEgg.

    Do you think I should buy this brand on Amazon Japan and go for it? Good thing about Amazon is they return anything.

    If its the same specs, it will work. Brand doesn't matter.

    Can I still use 1333 mHz even if the new (2012) Minis can handle 1600 mHz?

    Thank you. Newegg has the Patriot on sale for 89.99 today and was going to buy it until I saw this. Saved an additional 1.48 in Fatwallet cashback as well :-0

    Okay, cool. I thought so. I hope the Mini gets a refresh next week along with the other Macs!
