Mushkin show off their new Copperhead DDR3 kits
Mushkin Enhanced are a company best known for their premium memory modules, and rightly so. Continuing their tradition of making some of the best kits available, Mushkin have revealed their first 5 new kits to be fitted with their shockingly good looking Copperhead cooling system.
Mushkin are aiming the new kits at users of Intel’s Core i5 and Core i7 setups, with the range featuring two 4GB Dual Channel and three 6GB Triple channel kits. All of the new modules run at 1600MHz on 1.65v stock. The latencies are what set the kits apart from each other, as you can see in this list:
• 996775 - 4GB (2GB x 2) PC3-12800 @ 1600 MHz CL 8-8-8-24
• 996772 - 4GB (2GB x 2) PC3-12800 @ 1600 MHz CL 7-8-7-20
• 998774 - 6GB (2GB x 3) PC3-12800 @ 1600 MHz CL 8-8-8-24
• 998771 - 6GB (2GB x 3) PC3-12800 @ 1600 MHz CL 7-8-7-20
• 998773 - 6GB (2GB x 3) PC3-12800 @ 1600 MHz CL 6-7-6-18
Mushkin will also produce a rather striking waterblock exclusively for the Copperhead modules, as can be seen in the picture. The block should be able to should handle any 4 or 6 slot configuration of the sticks with ease thanks to Mushkin’s elegant yet simple mounting mechanism, consisting of 2 screws per module, directly attaching the heatspreader to the base of the waterblock.
We have yet to hear about official UK pricing for Mushkin’s new RAM, however after looking at some of the European prices, I’d have to guess that the range would start at around £90, with the flagship 6GB kit coming in somewhere between £180 and £220.
