Mushkin PC4000


Mushkin might not produce the fastest memory on the market but it is definitely up there when it comes to superior quality. We have had a look at a lot of Mushkin memory in the past and we have been very happy with what we have seen in the past. The particular memory we have chosen for this article today is Mushkin PC4000 memory.



PC4000 memory is slightly overkill for this system mainly due to the fact that the default memory speed is 200MHz and the A64 isn't a big overclocker right now. Let's have a quick look and see what Mushkin have to offer us.


- Specifications


CL3 @ 500MHz




Single Bank


32Mx64 Module


32Mx8 chip density


Jet Black 6-Layer PCB


Gold Contacts




2.5V - 2.75V




Installed Heatspreader (color may vary)


While the memory is rated at a high CAS latency of 3, this is due to the memory being of such high speeds. Mushkin have a nice little package going here and the reason we have decided to use this memory over some of the others we have played with is due to it not missing a heart beat over the past few weeks of using it with the Athlon 64 platform whereas other brands have had hiccups now and again.


Mushkin have always had an excellent module and for that reason we are using it here today. Let's see how it goes when strapped to the latest hardware around.
