Corsair Mac Memory Upgrade Kits: Guaranteed Performance, Compatibility, and Support.

Corsair Mac memory module
The DDR3 SODIMM format is compatible with virtually all modern Mac computers.

Corsair's 4GB and 8GB Mac® memory upgrade kits will help your system work better. With hassle-free compatibility and renowned Corsair reliability and support, they're a smart performance investment.

One of the best ways to improve your Mac's performance

Applications use memory, and some of the applications that run best on the Mac — photo and video editing — use lots of it. That's why outfitting your Mac with a Corcair Mac Memory upgrade kit is one of the best things you can do to maximize your system's performance and agility.

With a Mac that's been upgraded to the maximum amount of memory it supports, you'll spend less time waiting for your applications to buffer data to the hard drive, and more time working — or playing. Upgrading memory can also be a cost-effective way to get more life out of your older system: before you trade up to a new one, just upgrade the memory.

Tested at Apple Developer Compatibility Labs for Guaranteed Performance

Corsair's Mac memory kits are guaranteed to work with any Mac desktop or laptop that supports 4GB DDR3 SODIMMs, including most iMac, Mac mini, MacBook, and MacBook Pro models offered by Apple since 2009. See the compatibility list below for details.

Not sure if your older Mac will work with 4GB DDR3 SODIMMs? Get in touch with us, and we'll help.

Limited lifetime warranty, support and service

Corsair has been making high-performance memory for just about as long as high-performance memory has existed. Countless customers worldwide rely on Corsair for performance, reliability, and value. Our reputation is important to us, and that's why all Corsair DRAM products are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. If you ever need help, we're available by phone, email, and web forum.

The ram works great, and it was easy to install!

The memory itself worked on boot up no issues, and as far as the installation on the macbook pro, its not so bad.

I have used lots of Memory modules over the years, and Corsair has come to be one of my top choices when making a purchase. I recently obtained the Corsair [Apple Approved] 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 1066 PC3-8500 DDR3 Memory for my Macbook Pro 13" (Late 2009 - 2010 model). The memory itself worked on boot up no issues, and as far as the installation on the macbook pro, its not so bad. Granted the install is a lot different than that of the white MacBooks, but it is still pretty simple. All that is required is a small screwdriver and some patience. There are many tutorials on how to do this on Youtube, pretty much its as simple as removing 10 little screws (I would highly recommend keeping them in order, as at least 3 of the screws are longer and must go back in specific holes) and having somewhere to place them safe so they don't fall or get lost. ** Of course as always due care is required when touching or changing components inside your computer, things like a simple static charge on your fingers can be an issue (like when you rub your socks on the ground and shock your friend... not so funny with a computer) **

One thing that I noticed while installing my memory, is that the memory type required by the macbook pro changed sometime between 2010 and 2011 so you may want to verify your memory type in "System Profiler" which can be found in your Utility Folder on your Mac. That will usually tell you how much memory you have and what type (i.e. DDR3 1066, or some other type). If you need to know your maximum allowable/recognizable memory, I would recommend searching your model number on Apples Support page.

RAM worked very well in my MacBook Pro, easy installation, went without a hitch. Two weeks later I'm watching a movie and my computer goes into Kernel Panic, giving me a flashing grey screen and to restart. Turns out the RAM died WAY too quickly-and I'm very careful with my computers. Amazon was great about the exchange, had new parts to me the next day. Nice memory, pretty cheap, but definitely buy from Amazon and keep your package around...

Size Name: 8 GB
Does your Mac only have 4GB of RAM? Upgrading the memory in your system is still one of the quickest and easiest ways to boost its performance. Buying it from a memory company instead of Apple will save you TONS of money. Though, unlike high performance desktop memory, there aren't as many distinguishing factors when considering which SODIMM to buy. Pretty much all the major manufacturers have similar stated performance specs, so why would you choose Corsair's Mac Memory Kit over the others?

PROS:
- Great price
- Tested at Apple's compatibility lab
- Proven reliability
- Excellent support
- Lifetime warranty

CONS:
- Hard to remove from packaging

INSTALL & MEMORY TEST
Installing the Corsair Mac Memory kit in a 15-inch MacBook Pro was quick and easy, though I struggled a little bit trying to remove the modules from the plastic packaging. The memory was immediately recognized by OS X and everything ran quickly and smoothly. Rember verified the memory size, type and speed. The Corsair kit also passed memory tests with flying colors. Check out the Rember screenshots I uploaded to Amazon.

RELIABILITY, VALUE & SUPPORT
The timing for the CMSA8GX3M2A1066C7 is 7-7-7-20, which is the same as the kits offered by the other manufacturers. So then why would you consider the Corsair memory kit over the others? The most obvious is price. The Corsair kit has a very competitive street price. Did you know that Apple charges $400 for an 8GB memory kit?!

What might be less obvious is that the Corsair kit has been tested at Apple's compatibility lab. This ensures that the memory you buy has actually been tested to work with Apple's products.

Received the RAM quickly. Updated my Late 2009 unibody MacBook with the latest OSX (mountain lion) and stuck the RAM in. It didn't boot at first. I took both sticks out and inserted one, it booted fine. Finally I inserted the second one and it booted up with 8GB of RAM.

The memory ran hot when I first installed it in the MacBook Pro and after a couple of days the Mac wouldn't run. I put the original memory in and the Mac came back to life. Returning the memory to Amazon was easy and they quickly credited the refund to my credit card. I'd give Amazon 5 stars for handling the return and I'd give 1 star to the Corsair memory.

I previously purchased Corsair Apple 8 GB memory for a newer MacBook Pro from Amazon and have had no problems with it, so I'd probably try Corsair memory again.

The first kit I received from Amazon was defective. I installed the RAM and got the dreaded triple beep. I swapped in the originals and I was back up and running. The second kit installed without a hitch and passed memory tests.
I also have to add that Amazon absolutely has awesome service. I submitted the return on Sunday and I had my replacement RAM on Tuesday with free shipping both ways!
