My System Specs

Default Crucial Micron D9JNL - 6GB DDR3 1066 - pretty good and pretty cheap!

So after deciding to eventually go for watercooled RAM (I don't want to get into whether it's necessary or not, it's my rig) I decided to sell my Mushkins with the heatspreaders and buy some nekkid RAM.

I had seen some interesting results from these sticks on another forum, so I figured I'd try them out.

So nervously, I put my Mushkins up for sale and now Netforce has them

That said, I've been getting some decent results out of these Crucial sticks! I bought two kits because the D9 chips sometimes have a tendency to up and die and because, well, it was just so darn CHEAP!

Anyway, so far so good! I got them to 7-7-7-20 at ~1.71v 1600MHz passing Memtest86+ and so I thought I'd pump them up to 1.85v and see what they could do!

Here's what I have managed to get so far:


So, overall, pretty decent RAM for the price! Right now I'm running it at 1.65v 7-7-7-20-1T at 1420ish MHz

They are nice sticks; as I mentioned before I actually had a pair in my hands before deciding to return them.. I sure hope you don't prove me wrong though with my instincts on the HP3 Mushkins; once i get my system going I'll post some results and see where we're at!

Nice. Newegg restocked them or something, because yesterday it only allowed me to checkout with one. Gave it a chance and today it's checking out with two kits :)
