Mushkin XP2-8500 DDR2 2GB Kit
Published: 14th February 2007 | Source: Mushkin | Price: |Conclusion:
Overall the Mushkin XP2-8500 2GB kit is a great, solid performer. Aimed at the enthusiast end of the market, the kit definitely doesn't disappoint.
Although the memory would not go to particularly high speeds, the stock settings still give headroom for impressive overclocks while retaining full stability.
The kit is available on Mushkin's website with a List Price of £215 / $419, which, while still at the high end of a lot of peoples budget, is a very decent price when compared to other 2GB PC2-8500 kits on the market.
+ Solid at stock settings
+ Capable of very low timings
+ Stay fairly cool at higher voltages
+ Attractive heatspreaders
+ Lifetime warranty
+ Reasonable price
- Do not overclock particularly far within specified voltages
- Slightly unoriginal packaging
A big thankyou to Mushkin for supplying the kit for review.
