Choosing Memory

If you had to pick one of these two 2 GB kits, which one would you get?
  • Mushkin Redline XP4000 Redline [3-3-2-8]
  • G.Skill F1-3200PHU2-2GBZX [2-3-2-5]
Both kits use Brainpower PCB and Infineon CE-6 chips. There is a price difference of $30 between them. Money is not the issue, performance and compatibility with DFI Expert is.

Help me make up my mind.

I'm using the Mushkin Redline and they work great in my Expert. I'm running them @ 275 3-3-2-6 with 2.9v. They are very stable and may go higher, I just haven't had the time to play with them to much.
How do you know that the G.Skill is Infineon CE-6 chips? I thought the manufacturer was supposed to be a secret?
No its in many places including here :http://www.overclock.net/amd-memory/...d-modules.html

I would go with the Mushkin Redline matey. It offers just that bit more kick in the hearoom department.
Patriot xbl is good stuff-285/2.5 3 3 8 at 2.85v
I'd go with the G.Skill, better timings and proven quality.
Actually, I think that G. Skill is Infineon 5ns Rev C Brainpower PCB.

That said, I would go with the Mushkin.
I did find out that you are correct, that the G.Skill is Infineon CE-5/6. However, it is not on the list of IC chips in the post you made. Would you mind adding it on?

In regards to the poster, I would say its a crapshoot, although the Mushkins are probably binned higher and may OC better. The Redlines will also run DDR500 no problem, where as the G.skill you will have to OC to get that.
I'm looking at a pair of G.Skill HZ too... but only if they are the old style UCCC. Otherwise they will top at 227Mhz on 1:1, they go up to 280Mhz on a divider, which I do not want to do.

Otherwise it is the Muskin. Thank you all.
