You know the drill: countless hours spent in front of the magic box, doing research trying to get the most performance for your hard earned dollars. You have the latest and greatest of everything and now the one piece of the puzzle that is missing is your system memory. Well look no further, as we have a winner!

Recently Mushkin has been shipping all of their HP and XP series modules with EPP programming as an added feature. EPP, or Enhanced Performance Profiles, is an added bit of programming included on the SPD chip of the memory, to improve compatibility as well as allowing for one setting to control memory timings, overclocking and performance.
