Mushkin HP2 5300 (2x1GB) DDR2 667 Ram ReviewFormer staff writer - October 16, 2006
Overall I am very happy with the performance of the Mushkin HP2 5300 (2x1GB) DDR2 667 RAM, from its heatsinks to the way that it performs in my computer. While doing this review, I had the opportunity to speak with Mushkin technical support, and their technicians answered many of my questions quickly. It seems that they have a very knowledgeable staff. I have spoken with other RAM manufacturers and I always felt that they were reading out of a book; with Mushkin, this was not the case. One thing that struck me odd though, is that they were really interested in what speeds I achieved on my overclocks. Hmm, do they truly condone a taboo that other manufactures shun away from? I quite possibly might have to update this review in the future when I can acquire a motherboard that will allow me to reach better overclocks. It seems that the speeds achieved did this RAM an injustice.
- Lifetime Warranty
- Awesome Technical Support
- Heatsink doesn't add too much extra weight to the RAM
- Nice tight stock timings 4-4-4-10
