Corsair Ram For Mac

you can downgrade provided the line of your mac was released at the time of a given OS X, however the 2017 is not eligible for OS 10.11; the release of that system was on June 5, 2017 when Sierra was public and honestly Sierra is not going to be much different than 10.13 if thats what comes on the device. If you do decide to downgrade to 10.12 your device will still be in warranty.

you may see a little bit of a slug during boot and initial mount of the OS, but nothing more than that - and it may be imperceptible.

More RAM is generally far more Pro than Con especially if you are doing 3D or Video Editing.

Hey guys, I've been looking forward into doing the first upgrade to my MBP (MacBook Pro) which is the model 9,2 (Mid 2012) with Intel Core i5 / 2.5 GHz. So my question is pretty easy but I want to make sure I'm correct before spending the money, and later finding out it was useless.

I am between 2 different options of upgrading my ram. (Both 16GB (2x8GB).

Corsair Ram For Mac

The first one is the Corsair Vengeance 16GB RAM (2x8), 204 pins, Auto-Overclocking (no bios configuration required), which has 1600MHz, and 1.5V (Voltage).

The second option I've considered is also from Corsair, but instead is Mac Memory. This one has as well 1600 MHz, and it's specific for MAC, and also has 204 pins, but the voltage is 1.35V. and has 11-11-11-30 CAS timing. Now, this one I think it's pretty obvious will absolutely fit into my MBP since it's MAC MEMORY.

NOTE: Both are DDR3 Memory.

Which do you think would be better to put into my MacBook Pro? Btw, which is the appropiate Voltage for my MacBook Pro?

Thanks guys! Hope you have the answer to my question.
