5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: This is the 3rd set of Mushkin memory I am using and I never had any issues, always passed memtest and benchmarks.
Fired up XMP on a new Z87 board, rock solid and cool to the touch.

Cons: None, price did jump 15% on all memory a few days before I was to purchase, typical.

Other Thoughts: I really like the ridgeback style, very solid looking but was afraid down the road I could run into clearance issues with any aftermarket HS so I bought this version instead.
At 1.5V in reality ridgeback is vast overkill, even Frostbyte is to a certain degree but better to have some heat sink then none at all for longevity.
Now if you decide to up to volts to 1.65 for overclocking either one will be a nice benefit.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazeing RAM

Pros: 1866MHz = Stupid fast
Awesome aluminum Red color shield
1.5 volts
Low profile, Fitted perfectly with my Phanteks PH-TC14CS Cooler with both top and bottom 140mm fans

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I noticed my programs opening up faster and quicker response times then my old 1600MHz RAM, But then again this is faster so...., Another thing is that depending on your Motherboard Make and model, Most boards will set this at 1600MHz, So don't be afraid in entering your Bios and setting it at 1866MHz, it will work!!!

3 out of 5 eggsWe'll see

Pros: It doesn't appear to be damaged yet

Cons: The package was opened when i got it. I don't know if it was the packagers or if it was opened for security but hopefully it wasn't damaged.

Other Thoughts: I will write another review once i install it onto my computer, to see if it works or not.

5 out of 5 eggsGood RAM

Pros: I've tested this Mushkin RAM and similar Gskill 1866 Mhz. rated RAM and the Mushin 997007 is a little better though YMMV.

The red anodized aluminum heat spreaders are good looking.

Cons: The new DIMMs do not have the previous spring tensioners on the heat sinks, which I prefer for optimal contact with the ICs and best cooling. Most of the RAM suppliers are just using thermal tape for the heat sinks now days.

Other Thoughts: Based on my experience these DIMMs will OC to 2133 MHz. on many FX processors with the correct BIOS settings, thus there is slightly added value over the more expensive Gskill 2x 4GB. DIMM kit that I also purchased for testing.

5 out of 5 eggsquality memory

Pros: cool red color
solid memory from a solid company

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: I bought a 32GB thumb drive from Mushkin, I accidentally bump it while it was inserted into the computer and bent it by about 90 degrees, straightened it out, still works many months later.

5 out of 5 eggsGood For The Price

Pros: This RAM runs very stable at 1600, had running almost constantly for 5 months and had no problems.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: Running an Intel build if it matters any.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Muskin RAM

Pros: This RAM should run properly in any mobo including AMD mobos. AMD mobos are not any more finicky than Intel mobos IME. Asus mobos tend to push the envelope however and IME are very RAM sensitive. (See the OTHER Thoughts section).

The anodized aluminum Frostbyte style heat sinks are attractive and low enough to clear many but not all HSFs. 1866 MHz. frequency @ 1600 MHz. prices is a good deal right now.

If you're running your FX-8350 overclocked then you should be running higher CPU-NB and Vcore voltages to get stability. The issue isn't the RAM and neither of those two voltages directly affect the RAM. If you want to run the RAM overclocked then you'll probably need to increase the RAM voltage to ~1.65v for maximum frequency.

On my FX-8350 running @ 4700, P95 stable, I can OC this RAM to 2133 MHz. at the default 1.5v. I can't make it to 2400 MHz. however and my mobo doesn't allow me to change dividers.

In reality it doesn't really matter with any desktop CPU as DDR3 RAM running at 1600 MHz. or higher is not s system bottleneck and doesn't show any tangible system performance improvements. The RAM testing benchmarks show exaggerated gains because they assume the RAM to be under 100% load all the time, which it is not.

Those using APUs will benefit from faster RAM as the GPU section of the APU can use the added throughput, unlike desktop CPUs which have plenty of bandwidth with 1600 MHz. RAM frequency. Actually testing of real applications, not synthetic benches, proves this reality.

Cons: None so far other than slightly higher price but worth it IMO for good customer service.

Other Thoughts: All RAM has programmed boot information stored in the SPD. 1333 MHz. or 1600 MHz. would be a normal current RAM boot frequencies. If your BIOS recognises AMD or Intel XMP profiles then it may automatically set the RAM to 1866 MHz. as mine did. If not all you need to do is set the correct frequency in the BIOS. Failure of the RAM to boot at 1866 MHz. is NOT a RAM issue. It's a BIOS issue. The BIOS reads the information in the SPD and uses a safe boot frequency for the wide number of PC configurations that exist.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm a fan

Pros: Fast. U.S based company.

Cons: Slightly more expensive. A little difficult to get running at 1866 in AMD motherboard (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: This ram will default to 1333 MHz in any AMD motherboard. XMP is an Intel technology, so you have to manually set the memory timings for an AMD board to get it set to 1866 MHz.

I'm overclocking an AMD FX8350 on Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2, and to pass Prime95 tests, I had to bump up CPU/NB to 1.2625v, ram to 1.52v, and ensure HT speed was 2600 MHz. I also had to over-current the CPU/NB and RAM to 110%. Not sure if this is due to overclocking or not, but I don't feel like setting my cpu back to normal just to test RAM settings alone. Hopefully this will help anyone with the same motherboard.
