yes alot of their micron based stuff were dying

binning was retarded
rating micron pc2-8500 stuff 2.35v was stupid

nowadays gskills has better value
mushkin is still great but you pay more for it

don't get me started on corsair overpriced crap

Mushkin I had good experiences with my Redlines in the DDR2 days.
And I actually went out of my way to get Blacklines for my latest build only because of good experiences in the past.

That being said, Gskill can't be beat for value,

I've been using the same kit of blackline DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 for about the last 4 builds now. You get a reliable set of ram that works as intended. I've had a few kits of cheap stilleto silverline stuff as well, with no issue. I usually go with Gskill or Mushkin these days for RAM.

I have 16 gb of blackline enhanced 9-9-9-24 1.5v... Picked them up for about $40 per set and got a free lanyard and they have been great.

The high end Mushkin are pretty nice, the redline series are top notch stuff. They overclocking pretty good. The Ascent heat spreader are also something to behold, they run cold even when overclocked, but they can take up 2 ram slots on most boards(too fat).

I had a set of DDR3 Ascents that was bad, RMA was easy and fast. Great service.

Still have redlines that work wonderfully. They were the most recommended brand on here for quite a while when Greg was on the forums and still representing Mushkin. Great ram then and great ram now imo.

I agree with ST here, i've been happy with mine 2 kits since I got them & as well Gskill seems to be probly 1 of the best companies out there for price/preformance/quality ..... but then again ram being so cheap alot of the non major companies have that ability to do so.
