hhhmmm, maybe just a few companies are doing this as I'm 99.99% sure Mushkin is doing this on all their higher end kits.

Not hard to figure out what's in them.

Other than in certain 2x1 GB kits (in which lies D9GMH), pretty much all their newer kits are PSC (PowerChips).
I can't speak for DDR3 though...i believe they are using Micron for those high end kits.


On topic, great review 3oh6.
I'd really like to see stability though.
IOW, HCI Memtest.

I know, XS people love SuperPi.
Just it's not that great for testing for actual stability.

nice and late but better than never...i have posted some stability screenshots in the review of this kit. this review is of this very kit that i did the dual 32M clocking with. the 790i really held up running the memory stable up to 1060MHz @ 8-7-6. here is the link to the OC section of the review...

Excellent review and thankfully my faith in Crucial has been vindicated in recent times. I always thought Micron had Crucial up near the top of the mountain but over the last few months many have implied recent modules are average at best and these comments were coming from owners of the modules and thus had some basis.

Great review yea well i think most of the new Intel boards coming out are all exclusively DD3 if im not mistaken im going to be building a Nehalem rig so if its DD3 why the hell not. But im not familiar with why the ram modules have to all be running in different speeds that are deccreasing.
