Mushkin Enhanced Support - Page 37

post #361 of 486
Attached are two Memory benchmarks from the same PC. One with a OC of 4.41GHz / Dram @ 1634MHz and the other with a OC of 4.44GHz / Dram @ 1644MHz.

I would like to know how to read these, I assume the higher the numbers the better for read/write/copy and lower is better for Latency, but I would just like to make sure. There was nothing that I could find in Everest Ult (now Aida64) that explains how to read these benchmarks.

If the above assumptions are true then what I find interesting ii that the 4.41 OC had better L3 Cache benchmarks than the 4.44 OC did.

Thanks for reppin' your company here... I've already read much useful info.

My system is made of an Asus P6x58 Premium Mobo + i7 950 CPU. I need 12 - 24gb of ram for a 3d rendering and cad workstation. I'm interested in the following:

what's the difference between the redline and the radioactive? which are better for my tasks?
I'm eyeing the 998798 set... maybe two but can't find them anywhere. They are advertised on your website as LGA1366 platform ready (is this something special?)
Which would you recommend from the following list:
2x 998970, 2x 998959, 2x 998958?

Lastly, should i go with triple kits of lower latency + lower size or higher latency + higher size? i.e. (2x 998970 = 12gb 6-8-6-24 or 1x 998969 = 12gb 10-10-10-27)?

Thanks for the time and expertise.

Hey,

I'm trying to decide on what ram to buy for my computer. I've been looking around and have been impressed by what Mushkin has to offer. And where's a better place to ask about Mushkin memory than right here.

Anyways, I'm looking for memory for my Sandy Bridge build. I have looked into these models: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226123, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226120&cm_re=mushkin_ddr3_1600-_-20-226-120-_-Product, and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226173&cm_re=mushkin_radioactive-_-20-226-173-_-Product. All three have great timings, good ratings in the community, and one is priced at a very attractive price (the others aren't even available at this time). Would you recommend any of your memory kits or the others?

Thanks.

The difference between the Redlines and the RadioActives is the heat spreader.
The 998798 kit is EOL and no longer available

For what you are doing the amount of ram is the important thing, the timings are secondary.
The 998696 kit or 2 of them for 24GB, is your best bet

All those kits use the same module, the only difference is the heatspreader, they will work fine with Sandy Bridge.

Just to make it fun, all three kits are available direct smile.gif

I noticed these Mushkin's run at 1.65v. Will I still be able to run my processor at the 1.5v? I've been reading about how you shouldn't adventure past 1.5v with Sandy Bridge processors.

Also, what heatspreader do you recommend?

The memory voltage for LGA1155 is exactly the same as for X58 and LGA1156, 1.65V or less.

What heat spreader to get is a personal choice, comes down to what you like personally. wink.gif

Is there still a threat of damaging the chip when running higher than 1.65V on the memory? I'm not sure how SB works since I haven't used it yet.

Sean,
How's the availability of the 2x4GB DDR3 1600 (7-8-7-24) kit (996954)? Newegg is out of stock and has been for some time now.

Hey Sean, does mushkin plan on making specifically designed memory sticks for Intel's 1155 sandy bridges? I know G.Skill does and anticipate the other top vendors to probably follow suite. Thanks for the info.

So I own a 996805 Kit (2x2Gb Redline 1600 6-8-6-24) and I got an offer to upgrade to sandy bridge with a P8P67 Evo and a 2500k, do you think this rams will allow me the same overclocking as in my current P7P55D Premium?
I can run 2000Mhz @ 1.65v with 7-10-7-24 and up to 1730 with 6-8-6-24 (1.65v) also.
