    Now that I am all ready with my fresh OSX 10.10 installed, I have noticed that the screen starts flickering and then freezes. Sometimes I can go back an work on my computer after the flickering stops, but most of the time the whole computer crashes and restarts itself.
    I googled and apparently it was a fw problem with the display. I downloaded the fw, but it is not available for my version. Do you think that it that it's going to be hardware related? I hope Apple releases another fw update if they already haven't.

    Anyone had any experience with the video flickering on a late 2012 Mac mini?

    True, but this issue was fixed by software within one or two months.
    I've never seen it happen since then with Mavericks.

    It was probably a timing issue that possibly couldn't be fix to 100% by software or the issue was un-fixed by Yosemite. :(

    I even tried downgrading to mavericks, but the issue is still there. I am just over the year mark for the warranty to cover it. :(
