Mushkin shows with their current XP2-8500 DDR2-1066 memory modules that it's possible to get high performance for low money. Because was able to overclock an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket AM2 CPU to approx. 3000 MHz and the enormously high memory overclocking up to 600 MHz (DDR2-1200) was an important factor for these results. If you're using a DDR2 motherboard with some overclocking options, you shouldn't miss this Mushkin XP2-8500 Review.

Read the full review at OC Inside:

The memory modules are provided on a green plate with black passive heatsinks (heatspreader) to get lower temperatures, also with higher frequencies and/or higher voltages. This is especially with these Mushkin modules absolutely necessary, because such a high voltage and/or frequency would destroy the DDR2 RAM without a good cooling. Furthermore the test modules comes with EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles) to get reduced latencies and high frequencies on latest generation motherboards with EPP support.
