    Mushkin XP 998679 DDR3 3x2GB 1600Mhz (787-20)

    While this is an extreme section, and I do not perform some of the extended tests you guys often do here, I do think my review on this kit may be interesting to some readers.

    So just thought I would post a few of my max results with this kit and a link to my review. And no this is not meant as spam, I am simply sharing my findings and thoughts about this kit.

    I Hope you enjoy my findings




    Highest memory speeds obtained within acceptable voltage and timing ranges.

    Click images to view CPU-z validation pages

    CAS 6-7-6-18 1664.2Mhz @ 2:8




    CAS 6-7-6-18 1674.6Mhz @ 2:10




    CAS 7-8-7-20 1811.6Mhz (Stock Specified Timings)




    CAS 8-9-8-24 2080.2Mhz




    Cas 9-10-9-24 2143.2Mhz





    Super PI 8MB



    Again, click to view validations.

    238.97 Bclk with a ram speed of 1911.8Mhz at 898-20 timings




    239.04 Bclk with a ram speed of 1912.4Mhz at 898-24 timings




    5001.2Mhz with a ram speed of 2000.4 at 898-24 timings




    Update 5-7-10

    Massive speeds reached for validation thanks to 980X.

    So, somebody came out with 2533Mhz Dual channel memory this week.... I saw some crazy timings and though to myself who needs double channel with those timings?

    < Mushkin to the rescue!


    2522.8Mhz Triple Channel

    Yes, of course this is not stable like their $325 a stick memory probably is, but it was quick and easy to get there



    2609.4Mhz Dual channel

    Keep in mind these reviews were orientated towards helping Gigabyte users, as that is what I do all day

    what kinf of ICs on those memories ?

    i have a kit too of this with Ascent Dissipation and 1,65 i cannot boot over 830 cas 7-8-7 ...

    i pull-off dissipation and on my ICs there's write anything , there are only small number.

    I do believe BBSE's but I have not looked

    Maybe you need more QPI/Vtt?

    Mind posting a pic of your IC's?

    Thanks for taking the time to post the review. I have been looking at this kit for days trying to decide if I should buy or not. This helps me make up my mind. For what the "higher end" kits cost for simular timmings, this seems like the best bang for the buck...

    Thanks, Glad you enjoy my findings!

    Yes, these are a very nice kit indeed for the price, you can't go wrong by choosing them that's for sure!

    Heat? Where? Ahh, just kidding, they are fine though. I ran them at higher voltages then spec (Often this hindered performance as noted in my review) and they were only warm to the touch. Even at 1.74/1.76V they did not get hot

    Those frostbyte heat spreaders are pretty good actually, they may not be as good as the new eVCI Ascent heat spreaders, but the do not get hot if that is what you are worried about

    Thanks! I was surprised myself that they could get up there


    You have to have a 980X in order to do that though, the lower uncore multi's is what makes it possible

    wow if this is on air this CPU has a nice mem-controller and the sticks are also very very nice Mushkin still has some real good kits for reasonable prices

    Thanks!

    CPU/NB/Mosfet are on water, memory is just air cooled in case w/ no extra fans or anything. I was using 1.43 Vtt and 1.68-1.72 Vdimm

    Thanks, Ya Mushkin makes some very nice sticks!

    I think this may be a very good CPU, I was told though that it wont be the greatest under Ln2 though. I knew I wouldn't mind because I only use dry ice so I thought it would be great for my use.

    I was able to do 235 Bclk with ease when I first got the CPU, and then reached 246 blck that same night.

    On water, dry ice coming soon

    Ya I thought so too! My old 965 could only do 238-240 Bclk under dry ice, and with a lot of voltages and effort.

    I was super surprised to see this one going past that without flinching on water, was expecting it to stop way before that! Can't wait to get it under dry ice, which should be very soon

    Dual channel attempt, I think I have reached the edge of my IMC, I believe higher will require subzero cooling!

    2609.4Mhz Dual channel

    ouch looks like you pushed too far and lost 2GB out of 6GB in the last cpuz validation (showing 4GB detect)

    No, that is dual channel testing

    Didn't you see I said Dual Channel attempt?
