Mushkin PC10666 Low Voltage RAM Review

Up Close

Just like the Redline we reviewed recently the low voltage kit comes in a standard DIMM package with a nice green that accentuates the black Ridgeback heatsink.

Here they are in all their understated glory. A very nice matte black finish and a simple Mushkin logo are more than enough. So often companies put lairy graphics on their RAM when the reality is that once they are installed you never see it.

The standard RAM timings sticker shows that this indeed is CAS7 1.5v RAM.

We much prefer the stealthy appearance of the Ridgeback to some of the more "shouty" designs we've seen. It's a nice tough to see a Mushkin logo on the top face of the DIMMs as this is where it will actually be visible.

Nice review. And I must say the Ridgeback heatspreaders look amazing.

But quick question. You seem very amazed at the fact that the kit can do 7-7-7-20 @ 1333MHz 1.5V. But I'm doing that right now with some very cheap 6GB Kingston value RAM, that was rated at 9-9-9-25 @ 1333MHz 1.5V and it's even 1T CMD rate. I don't even have heatspreaders on them. Am I really lucky here or is this something any kit can do @ 1333MHz? Of course I can't do more then 1600MHz 1.65V so that's where the Mushkin kit goes stratospheric.
