5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: The stability of this ram is amazing. i put this kit into an asrock mobo and had problems right away with bootup. I called up mushkin, and spoke to tech support. they guided me in testing each stick of ram, and got the mobo to boot up. He was exceptionally nice and helpful, and i was very pleased. He went ahead and approved an rma for the ram right then, no questions asked. After getting to post, i then had troubles with activating triple channel, suspecting that it was the mobo yet again. contacted mushkin to make sure i wasn't missing anything, and spoke to the same exact person as before, which did remember helping me the first time. he asked me to send him specs and he would give me the exact bios settings for my mobo. now i can say that the ram is very stable I oc'd two sticks to 2000mhz with no stability problems at all, but the absolute best thing about this ram is the outstanding support given to there customers by standing by the quality of there products. dont think twice...

Cons: None at all

Other Thoughts: If you are like me, and trying to build a new rig for the first time, and you're not sure which brand of ram to choose from, then let me tell you that this ram is without a doubt one of the best brands there is. my i7 920 rig would only detect two sticks in dual mode, and when i attempted to overclock it, it kinda made me think..."you gotta be kidding me" you can overclock me all you want, and i'll still handle it". how many other brands can claim that you can run two of the three triple channel sticks and be able to overclock the two to run with the cpu at 3.9 ghz, and still handle it being stable. and not to mention that oc'ing the two sticks that high did not make them got very much hotter then using them at stock settings. I know now, that from now on any ram i purchase will be from mushkin.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Performance

Pros: I must say the product is true to form. It runs at the great. I put it on my i7 build with oc with no issues. The easiest oc on any RAM that I have every selected.

Cons: The heatsink covers on the ram does not work as great. It has my temp running between 40-50 which I would like it to run lower. I had to buy a cooler for my cards to make it work better.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I can't complain about this prouct. It works wonderful if you want to overclock just be ready for the extra cooling options.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: Runs at specified settings and timings after being set in bios. had zero problems, and i enjoyed the fact that Mushkin took the time to put intricate instructions on the packaging. they really went above and beyond. All my future ram will be purchased from Mushkin.

Cons: theres a rebate now for 20$ that i dont qualify for :(

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget ram..great service

Pros: The blue looks awesome! I cant say the color wasnt a reason for buying these =)

Runs at rated speed and timings when overclocking and stock..

Bought this as a part of a budget i7 build (thats probably an oxymoron but whatever =)

***The service on the mushkin forums was great. Its passed midnight and a mushkin tech was still able to help me this late with prompt responses.***

Cons: Not really a con but i bought these sticks of ram after learning how to overclock and how vital ram is to overclocking a CPU. Had i known the part it plays i probably would have tightened my belt and bought something more hi-end.

Other Thoughts: My core i7 is running stable at 3.6ghz with these things so i cant complain too much =)

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing RAM

Pros: What isn't to love, this is my 5th set of Mushkin RAM and I love it. At 1.5v it does it's rated speeds and timings without a hitch.

Cons: The ONLY downside for me is the heatspreader design. I am running 12GB of this stuff in a P6T6 WS Revolution X58 mobo from Asus and I had to put a fan on them at stock speeds and volts because they were getting to 60*C surface temps via an IR temp gun.

Other Thoughts: Mushkin is the only brand of memory that I have never gotten a bad stick from and newegg is the only place I'll shop :)

5 out of 5 eggsquality ram

Pros: Runs at what its supposed to run at+1t command rate. heat sinks are nice and the ram stays cool.

Cons: for the price none.

Other Thoughts: good "budget" ram, like i read in another review if you really want uberclocks get something higher end (from mushkin of course) but if you want to wait for ddr3 prices to come down these will hold you over.

1 out of 5 eggsRebate is a scam

Pros: ...

Cons: Bought these in January when there was a rebate. Now six months later they still have not sent me the rebate check. I have no more patients for Mushkin rebates.

Ram also would not run at rated speeds without errors.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for overclocking

Pros: Totally stable at rated timings, probably has even more headroom

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I picked mushkin this time around (usually go with OCZ) based on some strong word of mouth and I haven't regretted it. My system is very stable and this RAM let me overclock my i7 920 enough to get a nice performance boost.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: it looks good and pretty much reasonable price

Cons: it says the part number is 998659 but on my cpu-z it appears as 991659 (996659) so i dont know if egg gave me the right item. and i set the speed to 1600 but then the timings became 9-11-11-29 when it says 9-9-9-24 on the specifications. i dont know yet if i should reset it 9-9-9-24

Other Thoughts: they should put the overclocked and not overclocked speed and timings on the package so it wont be confusing

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings!

991659 is our individual part # for these modules, so NewEgg did ship you the correct product.

As for the timings, you may need to adjust them manually in your BIOS. For help setting your BIOS properly, please visit our support forums at forums.mushkin.com

Thanks for choosing Mushkin!
