I'm looking on for RAM upgrades for a 2012 Mac mini on Newegg this morning. I hoping to increase the performance of running multiple applications at the same time. Therefore, I'm looking to take this Mac mini to 16GB from the standard 4GB it came with. I'm also hoping that it stays quiet and cool, which is one of the things I love about this machine.

I see Cas Latency 9, 10 and 11 PC3 12800 1600 sticks being offered. Should I just buy an 11 or go with something lower? I know in theory 9 should be faster, but is that something you're really going to notice? I'm also worried about it creating more heat than ones running at 11. Do my concerns have any merit? Should I go with the faster sticks or not?

kingston plug n play are the biggest the fastest and very reliable..

no heat issues very low fail rate. they are the most costly.

are they worth the extra money?

good question I use them when I get a good price. do they really make a difference for my use purposes no. They do give me peace of mind in the fact that they are the best and I do not ever need to upgrade them again.

purchase links for them note the www.rakuten.com price

I was looking at some from G.Skill, but I will look into those as well. I was sort of looking to spend under $100 if possible for 16GB. If not, I'll probably just go up to 8GB for now. I plan on getting a second Mac mini after the Haswell-based models come out.
