    Hello, I'm looking to buy some RAM for my Mid-2012 MacBook Pro and just looking for a heads up, I want to buy it from my local pc store which is overclockers.

    www.overclockers.co.uk/productlist.php?groupid=701&catid=8&subid=1264

    I've found the right category but I'm not 100% sure which to buy, I don't want to buy the wrong ram and have it not work. Im looking at 16gb since its affordable but just need help on what to buy, thanks!

    If you're doing it in person anyway why not go talk to them or give them a call?

    I bought the Corsair Vengence 16GB kit (somebody posted a link to it above) just over a month ago for my 2012 MBP. No issues yet, and I've been running the crap out of it daily with multiple virtual machines.
