I currently have Mushkin Redline ddr3 model#998692, I want to go to 12 gig but need the thinner non- heat shield sticks so i will not have the 6 sticks to close together what is the current part number and where can i get them so they are compatible with what I currently have installed

Actually.. i have 6x2gb of the 998692's and they work fine on most of the motherboards i have used them on.

evga x58 classified series
asus p6t6/p6t7 and rampage series
gigabyte x58s

i cannot comment on others however.

If you can find a set of 998692 or 998691 either will work with your current memory, 998691 is the same except it has the smaller Frostbyte heat spreader.

If you need to get a new kit the 998805 kit will work, but you'll need to go with the 6-8-6-24 timings.

Just for fun I tried running my current Redlines at 6 8 6 24 and windows would not start

So I get this right the 99805 will work with my current 998692 if i set the timings at 6 8 6 24
I thank you I really want to run 12 gig of memory and add to my current red lines which are 998692 sticks. I wish i could find the 91 or 92 sticks but everyone seems to be out of stock

Why can I not set my redlines 998692 at 6 7 6 18 1453MHz Asus P6T V2 board set to 21*145 Dram voltage at 1.24 CPU Voltage at 1.01875 QPI/dram Voltage at 1.20625. Windows just loops at start up if I set the timings at 7 8 7 19 everything works fine. I just want to know for my continuing education about computers

Probably isn't booting since you have the DRAM Volts too low, like most ram set for i5/i7, the min volt spec is 1.65, so you should start with that and go up. Heck my 998805/998605 set clocks best using 1.68v. Might want to boost the VTT up a bit too. My sticks use 1.35VTT when I set the XMP Profile on.

The funny thing is I run it at this same setting when use 19*205 1603MHz memory 1.64 Dram and 1.20625 QPI Dram and CPU at 1.20000 with no problems
If I use 21*145 CPU voltage 1.01875 and QPI/DRAM voltage at 1.20625 1453 MHZ timings set at 7 8 7 19 every thing runs great but if I use 6 7 6 18 I get to Windows Boot screen and it loops back to starting over. I just would like to know for my own personal edification why

I found the reason there appears to be a Hole in trying to use Settings of 6 7 6 18 on a 21 Multiplier Everything works fine using on the other multipliers of 19 and 20 if I use 6 7 6 18. On a 21 Multiplier I must use 7 8 7 19 you cannot even see a performance difference.

Great thread!

I have a question for you guys.
I have 6 gigs of the Blackline model 998677B, and I need a mobo to go with these RAM. I've been looking at the GA-X58A-UD3R and the P6X58D Premium, and I'm just not sure which one to go with.
My question is two-fold. 1) Are there any compatibility issues between the RAM and either of the mobos? 2) Which one should I go for?

Thanks!

Sean based on your recommendation I am going to get the 998805 since you say they will work with my 998692 sticks I currently have and My timings currently are 7 8 7 19.
The reason for this is I have found there must be a hole when using the 21 Multiplier as I cannot even get W7 to boot using the 6 7 6 18 timings increasing voltage and QPI does not help

I got my new 998805 and installed them along with the current 998692 I already had. As usual because of 21 Multiplier I use with a BCLK of 160 I cannot use the 6 8 6 24 timings I just boosted them one tick to 7 9 7 25 and everything runs fine.
I did not get any paper work though for the mail in rebate what gives?
Mushkin Enhanced Redline 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR...

Sean One last question are these sticks supposed to run at 1N command rate, the bios in auto put it in 2T I manually changed it to 1 T

Sean with 6 sticks of memory in my machine 3 sticks of 998805 and 3 sticks of 998692 what should the QPI/DRAM voltage be for a ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 board

Sean what are the operating voltages QPI/DRAM for 998805 and 998692 I think you one sais it should be from 1.30 to 1.40 depending on various factors, is this correct?

Generally 1.325V to 1.375V is more than enough QPI/DRAM voltage for CL6 @ DDR3-1600. Some of the better CPUs are capable of doing it with less voltage.

One has Ridgeback heatsinks, and the other has FrostByte heatsinks. Not sure if they're going to be as open to say which ICs are under each.

The heatsinks are obvious. But since they come from different product line, I thought there might be difference.

Probably not a whole lot of difference to be honest. Ridgebacks probably have newer ICs. I'll let the rep chime in to see if he wants to disclose that much info.

The only difference between these 2 kits is the heat spreaders. ;)
It is against company policy for me to discuss what ICs are used.
