Mushkin XP2-6400 DDR2 2gb Kit



Mushkin pull away from the crowd in this department, passing up on the over-done chrome and gold effect heatspreders used by many other manufacturers in favour of something a little more 'extreme' looking.

The black heatspreaders are a fairly new design by Mushkin, which promise to have better cooling capacity. I simply love the look of the green and purple Mushkin logo against the black background.

I had a good go at trying to remove the heatspreaders to find out what was underneath, but unfortunately the heatspreaders are stuck directly to the memory chips with double sided thermal tape. According to Mushkin, they went well out of their way to ensure that the thermal tape used was of the highest quality and had excellent heat transfer properties.


The PCB of the XP2 series memory is manufactured by Brainpower, who are well know by overclockers for producing high quality PCB's which assist in getting the best results out of the memory chips.

Great review as usual Jim. Agreed the price seems a little high, but I'm sure with those timings the slight premium will be looked over. Very nice looking RAM May I put in an order for a review? I'd like to see some Crucial Ballistix PC2-8000 run through its paces, apparently it loves super agressive timingsQuote
