    Mushkin today introduced its first memory kit consisting of six DDR3 modules for use on Core i7 and other compatible platforms. The kit (model: HP3 995659) provides a combined memory capacity of 12GB (6x 2GB), which should suit workstations and other high performance systems based on the Core i7 platform. The modules operate at 1600 MHz (PC3-12800) at voltages between 1.5 and 1.6 volts with DRAM timings of 9-9-9-27. The modules come with the blue-coloured FrostByte heatspreaders. Pricing and availability will be announced soon.

    Ive always liked their heat spreaders. I wish more Core i7 Mobos would use 6 memory channels instead of just 3.

    "other compatible platforms" so i guess what they are saying is you buy this ram and then buy an additional stick to get 4-16Gigs?

    Dual LGA-1366 boards which will have 6~12 DIMMs or subtract 2 modules for other DDR3 supportive platforms.
