    I'm new on this forum, so I'm glad to publish in it.

    I have a Mac Mini late 2012 i7 2.3Mhz with 4GB RAM installed.

    I want to upgrade to 16GB, but I have some doubts.

    I have seen two options, Kingston HyperX (HX316LS9IBK2/16) and Corsair Vengeance (CMSX16GX3M2B1600C9) and the same model but with other part number (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10)

    Could anybody help me with the correct decission?

    Difference between both Corsair are de CL (9 vs 10).

    I have seen several opinions that indicates that works correctly and other that says it doesn't work.

    No problems within a 9+ hours memory test (3 passes). The RAM runs cool (1.35 V (Apple standard was 1.5 V) and is Ivy Bridge compatible. The RAM supports the Intel XMP (EXtreme Memory Profile).
