After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

  • Mushkin HP2-6400 4GB Memory Review
  • Mushkin HP2-6400 4GB Memory Review



    When doing research for this review we came to the conclusion that when choosing performance memory from Mushkin you can do well with just about any of their modules.  Generally speaking you can find similar speed offerings in both the XP and HP series lines.  Timings become better as you scale the performance ladder but is largely dependent on capacity. 

    The real eye opener with the Mushkin HP2-6400 modules is how well they overclocked.  As we showed you 1066Mhz is easily attainable with minimal effort and well within the recommended voltage settings.  The modules did not scale well after 1066Mhz and required more voltage and timing adjustments to remain stable.  As with any overclocking adventure your mileage can and will likely vary since these results are largely dependent on your entire system and not just memory modules.

    Now for the ever popular list of Good things and Bad things.  happy smile
