Mushkin DDR3 Blackline tempts you to overclock even more

The point of getting a memory kit with a bit of headroom has always been to allow for some sizable performance gains by overclocking the memory kits. That formula is unlikely to change any time soon.

Mushkin’s DDR3-1600 Blackline memory kit offers up good performance at its normal operating specifications and allow for some of that magical tweaking to occur as well. Legit Reviews has the details:

Now dropping to CAS8 really let the kit stretch its little legs. DDR3-2040 is a hefty 27.5% overclock at what I’d consider to be pretty decent timings for a $110 kit of memory. With more time manually playing with sub-timings and vdimm/vtt combinations I believe DDR3-2100 would be possible through at least Super Pi 32M.

A speedy and inexpensive choice for your next PC build.
