Mushkin Redline XP4000: Winbond with Voltage Be Damned

Mushkin Redline XP4000 is some of the fastest memory that you can buy, but it requires special handling that will not be everyone’s cup of tea. You need to feed it about 3.5V for best performance. Only one production board family supplies those voltages out of the box – the DFI nForce4 series Ultra or SLI. If you want to use another board, you may be able to use the OCZ DDR Booster, which costs about $40, to supply the higher voltages. The DDR Booster won’t work on every motherboard, but it does work on most. Or lastly, you could go on Enthusiast Forums to find the latest volt mod for your favorite motherboard. Just keep in mind that a volt mod will almost surely void your warranty.

If these options don’t scare you away, then get ready for some outstanding performance with either Mushkin Redline XP4000 or OCZ VX Gold 4000. There are no other options that can deliver 2-2-2 DDR memory timings at almost DDR550 speed. It takes voltage to get there, but you can be sure that your memory performance is as good as it will get.

too bad the performance difference versus stock 200Mhz 1:1 is far from impressive on Athlon64.

the most "recent" game engine they have there is Wolfenstein ET, and that game only offers a ~5fps increase going from 200Mhz to 267Mhz at CL2 2-2-5; hardly impressive in my humble opinion.
any recent game will see NO performance increase whatsoever when upping the FSB like that, the A64 does not need more memory bandwidth to perform better, it's not a P4.

if you think that ~5FPS increase in games is worth ~$300, they go ahead, why not

I would rather spend that money on a better videocard...

100% right... why the hell don't they use a recent game-engine too? (farcry-riddick-doom3-halflife2)
