Mushkin PC10666 Low Voltage RAM Review

wPrime 95

The 32 Million place calculation actually shows a difference between the memory on test which is surprising considering how quickly its over. Once again we're seeing something strange from XMP2 as it's slower than even the XMP1.

The 1 Billion place test naturally widens that gap even further. The low CAS that we have in the 1333MHz Mushkin at default is obviously the reason for it undercutting the Dominator 1600MHz, but the XMP2 profile isn't so lax in its timings compared to the Dominator GT that it explains this huge difference.


3D Mark Vantage

Finally the ever popular 3D Mark Vantage. Whilst we await the latest version there is still a little life in the old dog. The results follow the pattern we're used to now with the Mushkin XMP1 holding its end up very well, XMP2 being surprisingly under-performing and the the 200BCLK overclock rocking our world.

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
