Mushkin Enhanced  Blackline 12GB Kit Review

Test Setup and Overclocking

Motherboard : ASUS Rampage III
CPU : Intel Core i7 930
RAM : 12GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline
GPU : HD5870 1GB
PSU : Corsair HX850
OS : Windows 7 Ultimate 64


With the chips being so huge we expected to find quite a limit on our overclocking venture. Especially as they come out the box at 1600MHz already. However by slackening the timings a little we got it to run at 1904MHz, a very healthy increase indeed.

Although the tRCD and Command rate had to be slacked a little, we still managed to keep the all important CAS at 9. Very impressive indeed.

Very, very pricey I can pick up a 12G PC3-14900 kit with CAS 9-9-9-24 for 300£ but nice overclocking though, 1904MHz is a nice overclock.Quote

I'm confused, how do they look alike?

The Mushkin logo is the 'less than' sign next to the letter M while nVidia's logo is like a spiralling eye.Quote

I don’t mean exactly alike but they give you a feeling that there a NVIDIA product, I don’t know maybe it’s just me.Quote

Just for a test I installed Photoshop CS today and I have a CANON EOS 1000D Digital SLR Camera which is 10MP, I noticed when I use JPEG format my 6GB ram can cope with it but when I use the RAW format it runs out very quickly, but I’m afraid of adding more ram to my system in case it could slowdown my overclocked system (increase the load on my CPU) I have read on the web that most overclockers prefer 6GB on the core I7 systems, I’m not so sure about this so what are your thoughts tom.Quote
