Default Mushkin DDR2

Well, My OCZ sticks died (for the 3rd time). I'm not even going to bother to RMA them. I'm sick of messing with OCZ. Has anyone used the Mushkin DDR2? I use to have some Redline ddr1 i used on my DFI board and it was pretty good.

I just ordered this:
Mushkin REDLINE 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) with EPP Profile

They also have thier eXtreme performance line. Is thier ddr2 any good? I hope so....

Comp Specs:
Intel Q9650 @ 3.95Ghz
Asus Rampage Extreme
2x2GB Mushkin DDR3-1600 @ 6-6-6-17

I've had the first redlines (2 x 512 DDR) and the 2 gb redlines .

They both rocked, and i doubt their DDR2 line would suck. Redline series are expensive though .

It has been a while since we have reviewed a Mushkin Redline kit, and we were certainly impressed when we looked at the last Mushkin Redline kit for DDR. The 2GB Mushkin Redline kit turned in the highest overclock we have seen with any DDR2 memory at 1116. Mushkin also managed to reach the timings of the best high-performance DDR2 tested in this roundup - but generally at a lower voltage than others here. This is a winning combination, and you will likely be very happy if you choose the Mushkin 2GB Redline kit for your new Core 2 Duo computer.
