    Specifications:
    Number of memory modulesi: 2 x
    Memory typei: DDR3-RAM
    Storage capacity (RAM) per module: 8 GB
    Memory chipi: DDR3-1600
    Memory form factori: SODIMM 204
    RAM bufferi: unbuffered
    CAS latencyi: 9

    Thanks in advance

    I would add -
    Module type: PC3-12800

    Also, CAS Latency doesn't matter for compatibility. You'll find these memory dimms with anywhere between 9 and 11 cas latency. Any will work with the Mac Mini, and the difference is way too small to notice.

    He already stated its ddr3-1600. Stating it is PC3-12800 is just redundant is it not?

    It is redundant - but it sounds like OP doesn't know much about RAM, and sometimes it's listed for sale one way, and other times another way. If one doesn't know much about RAM, it's useful to know both ways.

    PC3-12800 is "Module Name" of DDR3-1600.

    By the way, PC3-10600 = DDR3-1333.
