Mushkin Redline 16GB Quad-Channel 2133MHz Review

Introduction

The quest for ever faster Memory to keep up with the enormous amounts of bandwidth available from the latest CPUs is seemingly an unending one.

We had Dual-Channel, then the X58 motherboard brought us the expensive, not as fast as it should be, Triple-Channel before we returned to Dual-Channel with the SandyBridge motherboards.

The recent release of the X79 chipset brings us Quad-Channel memory and potentially some incredible levels of performance. Our initial testing found it about on par with the P67 Dual-Channel, so how does the next round fare?

Anyone who has followed the Memory market knows how rapidly Mushkin have gained a big chunk of the market with their high-performance, good value, no fuss kits.

Today we're looking at a Quad-Channel Redline kit, with 16GB of 2133MHz goodness available to us.

Technical Specifications

As is always the case with Memory there isn't much to glean from the specifications. 2133MHz @ CAS 9 is good enough.

DDR3
1.65V
PC3-17000
2133MHz

Capacity

4x4GB

Timings

With the recent LGA2011 supporting Quad Channel Memory, the manufacturers are swift to take up the challenge. Cue the Mushkin Redline.

Ooh, I thought all the ridgeline heatsink kits had been discontinued!

Anyone know if we might get some black kits, or even better some white?

I really don't mind mind that they use a green PCB, it would be nice if it was black but once it's installed you can't even see it. Que Sera, Sera.

i know they dont advertise it but mushkin have made other colours of heatsinks for members on here to buy via aria forums and i would think they would do it again if you was to pm pt or rawz to set it up and then phoned the order in once they land

Because people have posted on it recently and as a result it has been bumped up the list.

Oh, I thought you meant in the forums. I'm not sure why it's on the front page on the website, but the published date says 25th April.
