Mushkin RAM - Anyone Try This?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Shopping around for performance RAM for a 1366 build. Had this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-060-_-Product

Out of stock, of course. Everyone is going Dual Channel Crazy for SB, I assume.

Went to Mushkin site, to see if they have anything else available:

http://mushkin.com/Memory/Blackline/998959.aspx

Look at that! Black heatspreaders, so I don't have to clash with an Asus P6X58D, and it's the low-profile "FrostByte" HS, so it will fit under the Thermalright Silver Arrow!

But, look again, at the price? Am I missing something: Why is this so much less expensive than the $130 I was looking at for the Redline?

The Redlines are Mushkin's top-of-the-line memory. On top of this, these Blacklines you're looking at have looser timings overall.

But the Blacklines are still a very good product. They're basically supposed to be 2nd to the Redlines.

The Mushkin Blacklines ARE 2nd after Redlines. I'm using 3GB of those and it OCs great! I got these from 1600 to 2000 without adding any voltage and without loosening the timing

I can vouch for these

Hey We became a member of this Forum as a approach to maybe assist my mom. She have a new pc but might possibly get within the near future. [url=http://pm63670.typepad.com/blog/2010/12/socrates-wp-theme.html]!

Huh? Welcome to OCN, but this is definitely not the place to be posting this. If I were you, I'd go to the new members section

Oh. It's just that if I were new, then I would have interpreted it as "This thread is definitely not the place to be asking that. If I were you, then I'd post that in the New Members forum".
