    Mushkin Enhanced, a global leader in high-performance computer products, announced today the release of ‘Ridgeback’, a new heatsink designed for the gaming and enthusiast communities. The initial series of Ridgeback kits will offer DDR3-1600 performance for Intel’s LGA1366 and LGA1156 platforms at two different latency levels, as well as a DDR2-1066 solution. In the near future, kits for AMD’s AM3+ and other platforms will be available.

    “The Ridgeback Project has been an exciting project for both myself and our marketing department. We’ve worked hard to develop this world-class memory cooling solution. Ridgeback will help ensure that modules work well in intense, high-labor scenarios and will also look elegant in many types of installations,” said Brian Flood, director of product development.

    glad they are finally moving on. mushkin's been using the 'frostbyte' design for what feels like ages...

    gotta love the diagram that really shows you nothing, too :)

    I still see them on newegg. They just got them in too, as they were out of stock the day before yesterday when I was looking at them.

    Those are the fat ones. Can't use 12 GBs with them, the skinny ones went off newegg and the 6-8-6-24 ones came in at their price.

    Or just for the marketing department? Is there something revolutionary about this that I'm missing? Maybe the explanatory diagram is just too technical for me.

    Yeah folks are still using DDR2, especially with P2 using both DDR2/DDR3. Was a fan of their frostbyte heatspreaders, but I really like the g.skill rip off heatsinks they have now.
