Mushkin HP2-5300 DDR2 1GB Kit
Published: 15th June 2006 | Source: Mushkin | Price: |Conclusion
This memory has impressed me. Being able to overclock from DDR667 all the way up to DDR820 while still maintaining stock timings of 4-4-4-10 with only a small voltage increase is testament to just how much Mushkin memory is geared towards overclockers.
When relaxing the timings to 5-5-5-15, a maximum stable overclock up to DDR850 was achievable - and something that might excite 'suicide' overclockers is that this memory was overclockable all the way up to DDR900 and remained stable enough to perform a SuperPI 1m calculation.
The icing on the cake is that the HP2-5300 is very competitively priced too. Coming in at $99.99 over at Directron this is an amazing price that shouldn't be missed by anybody looking to purchase DDR2 for their rig.
+ Overclocks to DDR820 with stock timings
