Mushkin High Performance REV2 PC133 module
ever faster CPU’s being released the system bus speed is also starting to rise
accordingly. With many new systems having a 133Mhz FSB as standard. For those
with slower systems you can effectively increase your system speed by a third,
or double in the case of Celeron processors, by simply increasing your FSB speed
are well known for producing high quality RAM & the overclockability &
performance they offer. In that respect their Mushkin High Performance REV2
PC133 continues on this tradition, offering both 133Mhz @ CAS2 support & an
improved PCB than earlier versions.
other things that separate this memory from the rest are that each module is
hand picked & that REV2 has more fine tuned
traces on the PCB. This allows for a shorter path & less electrical
interference, i.e. REV 2 consists of the best quality & has higher
overclocking potential/stability the previous revisions.

a shot of what the 128MB module looks like.
RAM module is actually slightly mislabelled (Being referred to as PC133 that
is). The memory module is rated at 7ns, rather than 7.5ns (As all PC133 modules
are). To get a memory modules effective rated speed divide 1000 by the ns of the
module, in this case 1000/7 = 143Mhz (Whereas 1000/7.5 = 133Mhz). This
essentially means you should be able to run this memory module at 143Mhz without
is great news for those of you who want to overclock your system as high as
possible, whereas many times RAM may be limitation. Although those seeking the absolute limit may well want to go for the REV 3 modules instead.
