  1. Mushkin showed off a few products at CeBIT, including a new line of memory modules and a solid-state drive series. The RAM, called Ridgeback, features a redesigned heatsink with ridges along its back (go figure), and will be aimed at enthusiasts. It will ship in various configurations, including three DDR3 kits targeting both Intel's LGA1156 and LGA1366 platforms, and one set of DDR2 memory. No word on pricing or availability.

    Nice low timings there, not bad heatsinks on those too. Where are the 2GHz+ versions?

    It's about time they got into the DDR3 market, I'm hoping for some good numbers from them. I've been using Mushkin for quite some time with my old PCs, time to update!

    I've bought numerous different brands of RAM and haven't had any fail on me at all. Currently i have 2GB worth of DDR2 OCZ Reapers which are a little outdated but still work very well for what i need them to do. I guess that's why brand loyalty among RAM manufacturers confuses me.

    I have OCZ ram in both my computers, but that is simply because I found a good deal on it. I'm not too picky about the brand of ram i use, just look for which one of the major brands has the best sell on at the time :D. If we see more good compilation for the DDR3 market, to me that means better prices :D.

    Is Mushkin a good company? Ive been looking for high performance ram for a while and these specs look pretty good.
  13. Last 2 builds I've used Mushkin. They are an American company in Colorado. Suppport is great, so is the ram. If you get the right RAM, it overclocks like a mofo.
