    I am planning on upgrading the RAM on my Mac Pro 3.33GHz 6-core 2010 to 16GB. I was wondering what the brand and model numbers were on the 4GB modules.

    I think I've read the brand is Samsung (anyone confirm?). But if you're looking to upgrade, both OWC and Transintl sell compatible RAM at competitive prices. Is that why you're asking?

    Yeah, but I live in the UK, so I thought branded RAM like Samsung/Hynix might be easier to get hold of.

    any DDR3 1333 unbuffered ECC memory should work. someone here confirmed Kingston ValueRam worked in his computer, anyway, which is about as generic as memory gets.

    Just buy it from crucial if you want compatibility.

    That was me with KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G which are ECC unbuffered with thermal sensor. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=11315422&highlight=#post11315422

    You can get either buffered, unbuffered, or registered RAM, but all the ram you put in the MP has to be the same. Apple ships ram which is unbuffered, so if you want to mix third party ram with apple ram, make sure it is also unbuffered.
