Removing the RAM on the mid 2010 Mac mini is an easy task that requires no tools.

    • Place your thumbs in the depressions cut into the bottom cover.

    • Rotate the bottom cover counter-clockwise until the white dot painted on the bottom cover is aligned with the ring inscribed on the outer case.

    • Tilt the mini enough to allow the bottom cover to fall away from the outer case.

    • Remove the bottom cover and set it aside.

    • Release the tabs on each side of the RAM chip by simultaneously pushing each tab away from the RAM.

    • These tabs lock the chip in place and releasing them will cause the chip to "pop" up.

    • After the RAM chip has popped up, pull it straight out of its socket.

    • Repeat this process if a second RAM chip is installed.

    A spudger makes this job much easier and less stressful with the second (lower) RAM stick.

    And Can or Can Not upgrade to 16gb for this model (mac mini mid 2010 - A1347)?

Do the RAM chips have to be paired, or could I replace a one gig bar with a 4 gig bar?

Thanks for any hints!

They don't need to be paired, although that is the optimum. Just remember, it is best to make sure they are the same speed, or the Mac will just operate both RAMs at the speed of the slowest stick. For example, if you have 2x 1GB PC8500 sticks in there, and you replace one of them with a 4GB PC10600 stick (fastest speed this Mac Mini will run) you will get a benefit form the extra memory, but not the full speed upgrade as both RAMs will operate at the speed of the 8500 stick. Does that make sense? So replacing both with 2x 2GB PC10600 will give you better performance.

Mike Haines -

This Mac Mini will run PC10600 RAM sticks, although I believe only 4GB per slot.

Mike Haines -

This Mac can run 16GB of RAM, mine does. Just FYI.

Interesting. I want to try that.

Same here with two 8GB sticks.

Kenneth Pesick -

I have the same problem. did you solve the issue?

frederic reblewski -

@Greg: Do you have any indication that your Mini actually uses 16MB? I’ve put 4MB in a Mini 2,1 well aware of that it only utilizes 3 of those but it still reports 4MB on “About”…

Do you mean GBs not MBs

Ben Capehart -

Does the MacMini mid 2010 work with 2 x 8gig memory cards? I currently have 1 x 8gig memory crd and 1 x 2 gig memory card but would like to upgrade the 1 gig to an 8 gig memory card.

Any advice on this?

According to MacTracker — It should support that @tcbconsult

Does mac mini 2010 support 1600 mhz frequency ram ?? If not then what us the max frequency ram supported

Secondly what is the max size to which ram in mac mini 2010 can be extended.

So mine doesn’t recognize any cards put in its second slot. This might be due to water damage - I had my computer checked after it got water in it (roof leak while I was out of the house) and they said nothing was wrong, but a year later, I tried to increase my RAM and discovered this problem. Is there any way I can fix it myself?

Jess - Ответить

so as of right now 1/9/2021 what is the max ram i could upgrade my mac mini to? its a 2010 model a1347. thanks in advance i bought a 8 gb kit 204 pin 1333 hzs and it didnt work but maybe the ram was bad i already got rid of them but in my mind am just thinking may be is not upgradable idk how to make it faster
