Can install 16 GB ram 1600 MHz for Mac Mini Mid 2011?


I read that is possible to install 16GB ram (2x8) 1333 MHz and it works well, but is it possible to install 16GB kit (8GBx2), 204-pin SODIMM, DDR3 PC3-12800? Thanks

Sorry no they are very different modules.

The DDR3 PC3-12800 is a 240-pin desktop SODIMM unit Vs the 1333 MHz DDR3/PC3-10600 204-pin laptop SDRAM your system needs.

Heres a good guide on what your system can support Mac Mini RAM guide

Fortunately it is not true. Have a look:


What's important is its voltage - Macs need 1.35 V modules


jacekkauch - Its important to also review the post date at the time the memory you are referencing here was not available. You also don't need the faster memory nor the low voltage version either in the model listed here.

Yes, other models do require the faster modules and the low voltage versions. So its important to review the spec sheet and Apples memory guide for the different series:

- Mac mini: How to remove or install memory

- iMac: Memory specifications and upgrades

- MacBook Pro: How to remove or install memory

The Mac Mini Mid 2011 supports up to 8GB DDR3-1333 MHz of RAM officially. However, one can install 16GB DDR3-1333 MHz of RAM or DDR3-1600 MHz RAM in both amounts. The SODIMM Modules fit but simply down-clock. I have 16GB DDR3-1600 in my 2.3GHz Mid 2011 Mac Mini and it runs perfectly and passes all of the standard Apple ASD testing. If you are installing 16GB modules make sure to do memory testing because there is a higher defect rate in 8GB chips when compared to their 2GB and 4GB cousins.

Desktop memory 240-Pin SODIMM is different than Laptop memory 204-Pin SODIMM, and no you can't use one in the other.


Please review the above link on the correct memory & sizes your system can support. While you can use a higher clocked module you gain nothing given the price difference.


Do you think this memory will work? https://www.amazon.com/dp/product/B00CQ3...

Thank you.


@joel, I don't think that is the right type. I typed 'mac mini ram' in Amazon, ordered the option labeled as Amazon's Choice, and it works perfectly fine.

Just installed 2x8GB (totaal 16GB) 1600Mhz on a Mac Mini mid-2011 i5, with succes.

Used these modules: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories...

Also running a 1600Mhz. Had RUN MEMTEST86 for some time, without errors and about 10% more throughput.

I installed ddr3l and it read as 1


Per slot and they were 16g each

Im assuming that the db in the store gave me the wrong one. Being that the specs were ddr3 ( without the L -which stands for low voltage )

So i am going to return them

N see

If they have the proper ones.

2 x 8.0GB 1333MHz DDR3 SO-DIMM PC10600 204 Pin

I have installed two 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 modules (i.e. one in each available slot) and it works perfectly!

Please note: DO NOT use non TS (thermal sensor SPD chip) equipped modules.

If you do, the fan will run at full speed and this can be very bad for the machine not least irritating.

I looked into installing aftermarket 4GBs in my 2011 iMac but ran into the exact same problem.

Had to put existing memory back in, but its feasible to swap the SPD chip(s) and then simply copy across the data altering the checksum to ignore the variable byte.

Typically it has to be done before soldering, then verified to make sure nothing has changed.

Incidentally its also possible to use these modules in a conventional laptop and having the thermal sensor can make things far more reliable as typically 2GB modules run quite hot at the best of times.
