Lately, most of the new RAM announcements that we have seen have been from industry stalwarts like OCZ, Kingston or Crucial. Mushkin has remained mostly quiet on the memory front over the past few months, but the company is apparently looking to get serious about its position with new Redline DDR3 kits.

Two new bundles are being announced today, both of which are becoming Redline family members. They'll work with Intel's LGA1156 and LGA1366 platforms, and they boast low-latency CL6 performance in 2GB modules. The 996805 and 998805 memory kits obviously promise world-crushing performance, which has become a staple of this company's products.

The 996805 - 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 6-8-6-24 Redline kit is on sale now for $174.49, with the (3x2GB) kit available for $261.99.

"These new Redline kits we are introducing are tailored for thediscriminating user. They are truly the best high-performance solutionavailable for Intel®'s DDR3 dual-channel or triple-channelmotherboards. For overclocking purposes, these modules are trulywithout peer." – Brian Flood, director of product development.

Part Numbers:

996805 – 4GB (2x2GB) PC3-12800 6-8-6-24 1.65V Redline

998805 – 6GB (3x2GB) PC3-12800 6-8-6-24 1.65V Redline

The new high performance memory kits are available now from the website.

I think it's great that Mushkin has a new product.  I remember several years ago they were the best ram for overclocking.  Hopefully they will be doing it again.  Can't wait to read the review for these, when you guys get them.

I've had a Mushkin set before and considered it a solid product. I also noticed that it ran cooler(to the touch)than the Corsair set with the same specs it replaced.

I actually use Mushkin Blackline memory now the memory is very capable. I run it at DDR3 1600 7,7,7,20 settings right now. I have heard running it at 1300 6-8-6-24-28 is also possible and it still runs solid and cool as well. I have not tried it yet and don't know if it would actually be beneficial, but am going to try it. Either way as far as it goes Mushkin performance memory is some good stuff :)
