Mushkin PC12800 6GB Ridgeback Review
Slowly but surely since the introduction of DDR3 we've seen a reduction in price until it has become quite affordable. This is especially important with X58 based systems thanks to the need to purchase a triple-channel kit to get the most out of your system as opposed to the dual-channel nature of the other chipsets available.
The problem with a more affordable kit has usually been that, like so many things, you give up a certain amount of style to obtain the substance.
We here at OC3D never mind a lot of substance at the expense of a bit of style. Something that is ugly and does its job is prefereable to a useless bit of loveliness. Germaine Greer vs Lindsay Lohan. However, if at all possible we prefer some flair with our hardware. A little flash. Milla Jovovich if you will allow us to continue the analogy.
Mushkin have definitely increased their presence on this side of the pond in recent times, and we've been very blessed by being given the first look at a variant of their Ridgeback-cooled RAM.
Normally Mushkin memory comes in a fetching, if slightly commonplace, black heatsink. All fine and dandy and black goes with most things. But what if you fancy something different? What if you fancy something very flash, but that doesn't break the bank?
Enter the Redline Ridgeback 1600MHz 6GB kit.
Mushkin certainly produce an enormous variety of memory kits, and making your way through them can be a challenge. Thankfully we have a model number which makes finding the specifications easy. We're also handily providing them for you here. OC3D - Truly an all-round service.
