Mushkin HP2-6400 2 x 1GB DDR2: Mushkin has been a long-time player in the memory industry, but the last time we had their products in our hands for testing was when previewing their Redline Heatspreaders. These heatspreaders were designed to create turbulence, to ultimately help dissipate heat. At that time they were known as the Redline Heatspreaders, but they were appropriately renamed to FrostByte. The RAM modules that we have in for testing today are the Mushkin HP2-6400 2 x 1GB kit with enhanced timings and these FrostByte heatspreaders. These memory modules have a SPD frequency of 800MHz with timings of 4-5-4-11 and supported voltages up to 2.1-2.2V. We have paired these DDR2 modules with the i975X-based Abit AW9D, and set out for some performance tests today.
