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 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Memory for Apple Model CMSA16GX4M2A2666C18. Type: 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM Compatibility: Recommended iMac 5K Display (Mid-2017) and Mac mini (Late-2018). The two 16GB DDR4 RAM sticks feature custom performance PCBs, delivering stability and premium signal quality, while the aluminum heat spreader regulates temperature for excellent cooling capability. This CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO 32GB memory kit works seamlessly with the iCUE software for effortless RGB lighting control and management. This item Corsair Mac Memory 16GB (2X 8GB) DDR4 2666MHz C18Memory Kit Corsair Apple Certified 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1333 MHz (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory 1.5V Corsair CMSA8GX3M2A1333C9 Apple Certified 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333 MHz (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory 1.5V. Crucial 16GB Kit (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 SODIMM Memory for Mac CT2K8G4S266M Configuration ID: CT14560758.
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.
