Value and Conclusion
- You can find two 1 GB modules for $331 on Mushkin.com. But this price should fall once the memory hits retailers on November 18, 2005
- Awesome overclocking
- Great timings
- Overclocks well, without any extra voltage
- Great heatspreaders that do not pickup fingerprints
- Kind of expensive compared to competitors
When i first pulled this RAM out of the Box I was very surprised. First off its was called Redline, which most of us know as the CH-5 bearing 1 GB kit. Second it had the brand new heatspreaders I had heard so much about. Never the less I was totally surprised by its performance on i865, it beat my BH-5 in bandwidth and timings at 265 MHz and my TCCD in timings at 275 MHz. As you can probably tell, I really love this memory at 265 MHz, and there is a good reason for that. It is a combination of tight timings and great bandwidth and it is rock stable at 2.8V, plus it is a 2GB kit which no one expected to turn out so good with DDR333 rated CE-6 chips. Apparently the CE-6 chips were made at a very high yield and perform above par. This memory is definitely a keeper, and holds its own against other 2GB kits.
