Memory Ram: Best Manufacturer? - Page 3

post #21 of 43
Doesn't the OEM of the IC's play into these ratings? IOW isn't any "manufacturer" only as good as their ICs and the implementation thereof? Seems like based on the IC I'd want a correctly configured Micron based stick every time. Not really invested in this; just asking.

Been a loyal Mushkin user since '95. I see no reason to change that.

My current Redline modules are quite good!

Yes, but manufacturers pass the finished products through quality control. A reputable brand (like Corsair) will have:
- Very few DOA products
- Well-binned (lots of overclocking headroom)
- Better customer service/return policies.
- Better build quality (like heat-spreaders that actually help cool the ram).

Mushkin and G.Skill by far, with Mushkin being slightly better than G.Skill all around... why? Because Mushkin is an employee-owned 100% American company and their build quality reflects that. Some of the higher end G.Skill modules do really show their true colors when put to the test. I've had to RMA a kit before, but their support is top notch.

At the same time however, I've never had a Mushkin die on me and they overclock like champs.

Both are quite good, G.Skill is cheaper so go with what your budget allows however I personally try to not cheap out on the essentials like RAM and PSU... everything else is fair game.

Corsair is also a good one.

Though I dont find much of a difference between the quality of RAM between any of the manufacturer's unless its low-end junk.

I can't really agree with this. I haven't had a set of Corsair ram overclock well in many years, probably since the days of s939.
