    My Muskin redlines took a shit today so im buying some new stuff till I can RMA the other sticks.

    My system details are in my spec's if needed.

    Wanting some killer non expensive lower latency 2X4GB 2133Mhz or 1866MHz that is flexible with there timings...

    The Muskins are 2133 9.11.10.28 1T and my mobo's poster shows 55 and the post led's stop at Dram so it's obvious its the ram.. 2T works but I know these sticks are on there way out :mad:

    Post some links guy's, time is ticking for me to place an order so I have them by Monday.

    I did an RMA last night and got the approval this morning. As always Im doing the cross ship and will have the new hand picked cherry set in my hands this coming week. Cherry picked I say is they know Im a repeat customer and they know I LIKE TO PLAY WITH HARDWARE :rockout:

    Shawn the Muskin tec support guy last night told me to just rma them. What bothers him is they ran 2133MHz in 1T mode sense day one, and now they wont. That tells him they're degrading.

    I'm so glad to stick with this American built memory company for the fact they actually care about their costumers...

    I was going to buy a set of Sammy's but my research shows me... yeah there highly clockable but the speed just isn't there on the benches compared to this stuff..

    Muskin is a win win imho! :respect:

    Oh Im going to get shot for this by the wife but I sucked it up and pulled the trigger on these sticks...
    I hope the screws are actually screws to change the light bar. If not I guess its dremmel time and a walk through Home depo for screws to hold the heat spredder on lol..

    Id like to change the light bar to red to match my system..

    Nice, are those the sticks that light up like cadeeca's?

    Btw the the Sammys may not look like much but they are great performing memory. Not only can many attest to it, but cadeveca's own review prices it. My 16gb run like champs.
