Mushkin PC10666 Low Voltage RAM Review

SiSoft Sandra

The Memory Bandwidth test of SiSoft Sandra is much more reliant upon the rated MHz of each RAM kit and so is probably the purest synthetic benchmark we run here at OC3D. As you can see the results are almost exactly where you'd expect them to be compared to the speed. The 1333MHz Blackline Ridgeback at the bottom, then the 1600MHz Dominator. The main difference between the 3 2000MHz kits are that the Mushkin needs slacker timings to achieve that speed than the Corsair Dominator GT but regains the loss with the CPU overclock.


PC Mark Vantage

Speaking of linear graphs, PC Mark Vantage gives us almost exactly that. When we're creating the graphs we try and order them in the order we'd expect the results to be and PC Mark Vantage with its suite of in-built utilities gives us nearly perfect results.

With the extra oomph of the 200BCLK test completely dominating the chart, the other tests are surprisingly close in the overall PC Mark score.

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.Quote

good review

just an edit for you though on page two you missed the h in though and added an a

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.Quote
