Does anyone here know the CL rating for Apple Ram? I'm going to upgrade my ram next week & want to try to get as close as I can to Apple specs. I can't seem to find anywhere what the CL rating for Apple ram is. I have a Mac mini 2011 2.3 Ghz 2 GB ram.

Thanks........

trust me just buy this ram


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231295


It matches apple specs. there is no such thing as apple ram just buy a ram that matches specs. I have built 50 2011 minis with this ram. Only 1 bad stick so far. I run a 4 hour ram test on all the minis after adding this ram. I have sold a lot on ebay.

here are some old listings

cl9 if you must know.


there are at least 20 companies with good ram for 2011 mini's


in no special order

samsung, crucial/micron, mushkin, kingston, gskill, pny,hynix, geil, super talent, elpida

all have been good for me.

corsair is ? patriot ? ocz ? the ones I say are good I have used more then 5 sets no failures.

the ? around two or three sets and one failed with slow rma.

Thanks philiparcario for your suggestions. Just two more Question: I saw some manufactures have a Cas Latency of 7 while others have a Cas Latency of 9, does that really matter? Is a Cas Latency 7 faster or produces more heat than a Cas Latency of 9?

thanks.......

7 is faster but it may be 1066 which is slower



9 is most likely for 1333 ram


so quick math 1066 divided by 7 is 152 1333 divided by 9 is 148


what does that mean?

basically 1066 ram with a latency of 7 is just about as fast as 1333 ram with a latency of 9. as for heat look to see if the ram is 1.3 1.5 or 1.65 volts 1.3 volts is coolest.
