Mushkin HP2-5300 DDR2 1GB Kit

Conclusion

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.


Pros
+ Overclocks to DDR820 with stock timings
+ Overclocks to DDR850 with relaxed timings
+ Competitively Priced
+ Good looking heatspreaders

Cons
- The first time I've ever said this: None

its a shame that the Mushkin stuff is quite hard to get hold of in the UK. Some sites have it, but nowhere near the full range
