    Mac mini (Late 2012) and Mac mini server (Late 2012) computers have two internal memory slots. These slots accept standard PC3-12800 DDR3 204-pin SO-DIMMs (Small Outline DIMM) with the following specifications:

    • PC3-12800 DDR3
    • Unbuffered
    • Non-parity
    • 204-pin module
    • 1600 MHz

    You can use RAM module sizes of 2 GB, 4 GB or 8 GB in each slot. For best performance, don't mix sizes of memory modules. Install two identical memory modules.DIMMs with the following features will not work:

    • Registers or buffers
    • PLLs
    • ECC
    • Parity
    • EDO RAM



    Does Kinston say they will work? Have you went to their support site?

    Mac's are picky about memory
