Mushkin PC10666 Low Voltage RAM Review
We recently reviewed the Mushkin Redline DDR3 kit and found that not only was it a thing of beauty and performed well at stock settings, but it also was an overclocking beast. The Ridgeback heatsink being both low-profile to fit under our test Noctua NH-D14 cooler and also high-performing with the RAM cool even highly overclocked.
This got us to thinking. If their high-performance RAM is exceptional, then maybe their low voltage RAM will be good too. After all we've seen a few low voltage kits pass through our doors and all of them were surprising in their level of performance and ability to overclock.
Mushkin have a very low latency, low voltage 6GB kit available so we just had to see how it faired.
As you can see with an operating voltage of only 1.5v there is a cut down in speed when using the primary XMP profile with the RAM being rated as 1333@7-7-7-20.
Low latency timings and some voltage headroom should at least see us able to push onwards a bit, but how far?
