Mushkin XP2-6400 2x1024MB PC2-6400/DDR2-800 (996523) Memory Review

Mushkin’s current XP2-6400 DDR2-800 memory is not only highly overclockable, but also reasonably priced. The high performance of the DDR2 800 modules exceeds the expectations and the reason becomes clear with a look under the heatspreader. Because Mushkin uses the well-known Micron D9GMH memory chips on the tested modules and these memory chips are also used on high-end DDR2-1200 modules. Just the maximum allowed memory voltage for the Mushkin XP2-6400 RAM is a little bit lower with 1.9 Volt up to 2.1 Volt. But of course, it’s well-known that overclocking isn’t always within the specifications. The following review will show you all details about this 2GB kit and give you an extensive comparison to all memory modules tested so far.

Thanks for the support …
