    I want to upgrade my 2012 MBP 13's RAM to 8 gigs but the only brand I can find on newegg with 1.35 voltage is Mushkin. Is this brand good? Another question I have is should I do one stick of 8GB and use my other 2GB stick for now, that way when I want/need 16GB's I can just buy another 8GB stick. Or should I do the 2x4GB?

    One stick of 8

    Two sticks of 4

    I could with OWC but its a little bit more.

    Thanks for your advice

    Mushkin is a good brand, along the lines of Corsair, Kingston and Crucial.

    Also, having different size modules (8GB v 2GB) will mean that you will loose dual channel speeds (roughly twice single channel operation).
