    Mushkin is the best... Expensive but IMO the best. I've got their stuff in my desktop and laptop.

    G.Skill sell a 2x2GB 1000Mhz kit, easily overclockable to 1066Mhz (as you can see in my system specs).

    Unless the Mushkin modules use Micron-D9 chips, which is very unlikely, there should be almost no difference.
    Fitseries3 says thanks.

    Mushkin are indeed one the best, but they are closer to Corsair/OCZ than to G.Skill/Crucial on the price/performance tier.
    Fitseries3 says thanks.

    Since they both use the same voltage, my assumption would have to be that the 1066Mhz modules are handpicked, and composed of the best of the batch, of what is likely "Powerchip" chips.

    I don't know if there're any 2GB modules with D9 chips...they're produced for 1GB package modules only.

    Yeah, that's probably true. And with DDR3, I don't know if Micron will make D9's for 2GB DDR2 modules.

    Not bad... pity on the high voltage needs.
