Introduzione

La rimozione della memoria RAM è un'operazione semplice che non richiede attrezzi.

Posizionare i pollici negli incavi nel coperchio inferiore.
  • Posizionare i pollici negli incavi nel coperchio inferiore.

  • Ruotare il coperchio inferiore in senso antiorario finché il puntino bianco dipinto su di esso non è allineato con il cerchio in rilievo sul case esterno.

    • Non è necessario esercitare particolare forza verso il basso durante la rotazione.

This took a lot of force on my Mac mini. A lot.

I agree. It took a crap ton of force from my thumbs to twist the bottom off.

I accidentally broke the little things that hold the cover to the case. Is there a cheap replacement to the cover? Those clips are held onto it very weakly.

Don't just use your thumbs... Use your whole palm to twist it, with maybe a thumb in one of the recesses, applying slight downward pressure.

I think it depends, I have seen some that are very difficult to open and some super easy. But I see them everyday. I wish there was a tool that fit in the holes.

When seating the bottom RAM chip you may have to apply a little extra side force to get it to seat properly. I put in the new RAM and just got a beeping sound upon starting. I then put the old RAM back in and got the same result.

Here is the solution I found on the Apple discussion board.

"Take a small flat head screwdriver and after you put the memory in slot 0, put the screwdriver between the top of the mac mini and the memory then turn the screwdriver a little to exert pressure on the memory into the slot. Do it on both sides of the memory."

This worked for me.

I remember this when I was changing my memory ... I realized (after opening) that more you push, more force it take to open the cover. As you push down you force the cover "to rub" the casing and possibly other things inside. If you "lightly" hold the cover it comes right off ... Remember: less is more! :-)

Have fun!

We found it hard to use the thumbs but if you put the casing on a carpet and one person is holding the case while the other is using his palm of one hand to turn the cover it comes off quite smoothly and without much downward pressure.

Inclinare il Mac mini abbastanza da sganciare il coperchio inferiore dal case esterno.

  • Rimuovere coperchio inferiore e conservarlo altrove.

I have a late 2012 Mac mini, but it must be an earlier version than this late 2012 Mac mini in this description, because removing the hard drive is much more complicated than described here. Please see this YouTube video if you have trouble removing your hard drive with these directions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvmuQIZP... There is a longer process you've got to go through. It can be done, it just takes much longer. (3-4 hours for me)

This applied to me as well. The iFixit article was good and lots of helpful information in the comments but my mini was different and required more dismantling. The video sandyfacebook posted was very helpful in taking me the rest of the way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvmuQIZP...

My HDD replacement procedure took 2 jours of research, one night sleeping on it and 30 minutes to perform…

Rene Girardin - Replica

  • Sganciare le linguette sui lati del chip di memoria RAM, premendole contemporaneamente in senso opposto al chip stesso.

  • Queste linguette bloccano il chip in posizione. Sganciandole, il chip "salterà" fuori.

  • Dopo aver sganciato il chip di memoria RAM, estrarlo dal relativo connettore.

  • Ripetere la procedura in presenza di un secondo chip di memoria RAM.

So if I were to replace the Ram on my mac mini I would only have the option to choose between the 2 gb chip or the 4gb chip? I know dumb question lol.

Bianca - Replica

2x8GB is as much as those motherboards can handle.

Kevin Shaffer -

Dear everyone,

Does this mac mini accept :

KINGSTON DDR3 PC3-12800 - 2 x 4 Go (8 Go) 1600 MHZ - CAS 10 - HyperX Fury Black Series

Thank you.

I always consult Crucial's memory configuration tool. For a late-2012 Mac mini, see http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible....

According to them, this Mac can go up to 16GB (2 SO-DIMMs of 8GB each). The SO-DIMMs should be DDRL3L-1600 (DDR3L PC3L-12800, CL=11, unbuffered, non-ECC, DDR3L-1600, 1.35v)

The SO-DIMMs you mentioned seem like they should be compatible (CL=10 should work fine in a computer that can accept CL=11). But I would only buy from a vendor that has a compatibility guarantee. If there's a problem, I would want to be able to return them for a refund.

David Charlap -

The SODIMMs don't need to be low voltage DDR3L (i.e. 1.35 volt). In fact Apple recommends (https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT202593) regular 1.5 volt DDR3 and most late 2012 Mac Minis were shipped with it. So is Crucial wrong? The truth is that either will work.

John Morley -

I upgraded my Mac mini late 2012 with 2x8 gig sticks but it only sees 4 per bay. I have re seated them a few times. There is still to no change. Any ideas?
