Ifixit says I need 10600 RAM but OWC says I need 12800.

So I bought this RAM a while ago for my 2.4GHz MacBook Pro Late 2011 which is PC 10600 and everything seems to be working fine. ifixit says I have the right RAM for my computer but OWC says I need PC 12800. Can anyone confirm what would be best for my computer?

Here is the EveryMac spec listing of your system: MacBook Pro 13" 2.4 GHz i5" (Late 2011)

As you can see EveryMac lists PC 10600 1333 MHz DDR 3 SDRAM for your system.

While you can use faster speed modules they do need to be the correct type.

The only difference between DDR3 and DDR3L is the L modules run at a lower voltage so they run cooler and give you a bit longer battery life when your on the run. Both will work in your system.
