I'll add images tonight when I get home.

First post here too.


Welcome!

What brand of RAM are you using in this configuration?

marv777, we get it. You have a 2011 MM with 8 GB of RAM, not 16 GB, as Apple "told you".

However, this thread is about the mid-2010 MM and it's capabilities of handling 16 GB. mwhities has achieved this configuration and I'm trying to find out what brand of RAM they are using. Finding 16 GB (2x8) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) chips has been difficult and I'd rather not reinvent the wheel.

A little pricey at $99 but OWC is now stocking a 16GByte kit for the 2010:

Thanks saul. It's really the only one I've found as well. Guessing it's what mwhities has used.
