Mushkin XP2-9200 DDR2 1150 Mhz (2 x 1GB) Ramccokeman - April 12, 2007
After spending some time with these modules, I have come to enjoy the performance they bring. With the ability to run 1:1 with pretty much any processor out right now, you should not have any memory issues. The one thing I found I did not like, was that the EPP profile was a bit conservative when it came to how it set the timings. 5-6-5 timings just could not keep up at the lower end of the spectrum. Now, when you start ramping it up and get up and over 600 FSB, they start to come into their own and even the field up. The modules were easy to get clocked to 600 mhz, but after that they really start screaming for voltage. With the large gap from 600 to 632 FSB on my board, 2.4v was not enough to bridge that gap. It doesn't mean I won't stop trying though. Another great set of memory modules from Mushkin.
So you like what you have seen of these modules but the price for that kind of performance is a little steep for you? Well take a look over HERE for your chance at winning a set of these Extreme Performance modules so you to can play with the big dogs. And as Alex Trebek says each night on Jeopardy: Good Luck!
- Easy to clock to insane speeds
- Timings can be run tighter at rated speed
- Modules stay cool at 2.3v
- Conservative EPP programming
