While many memory kits tout their capacity or speed many overlook the added performance benefit of tighter memory timings which is usually good for better performance if you aren’t going to overclock your system.

The Mushkin Ridgeback PC3 16000 DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Kit sports some interesting specs which lead to a measurable performance improvement over similarly clocked memory. Overclockers Club has the review:

The Ridgeback kit we are going to be looking at today comes is a 2000MHz 4GB dual-channel set with timings of 7-10-8-27 and a voltage requirement of 1.65V. These timings are tight for a 2000MHz model, which can lead to improved performance when compared to the competition. Also, since the memory voltage is set at 1.65V, it does not exceed the maximum voltage level of Intel’s LGA 1156 socket. With this kit being part of the new Ridgeback series, it utilizes Mushkin’s new cooling solution that has two thick heat spreaders placed on each side of the modules and a ridged, finned array at the top. This new design has proven to be very effective at dispensing heat and keeping the memory cool, which will increases the lifespan of the memory and can also improve the overclocking capabilities. As with all memory from Mushkin, this kit is hand-tested before shipping and backed by a lifetime warranty.

Can’t fault speedy memory and the performance it brings along with it.
