    Mushkin Vs Corsair

    Is it me or that muskin is not getting the attention they should be getting.

    Ram
    Mushkin Redline - 6-6-5-18
    http://mushkin.com/Memory/Redline/998730.aspx

    Corsair Dominator GT - 7-7-7-20
    http://www.corsair.com/products/dominator/default.aspx

    Sure Mushkin's ones don't look too good but in raw speed its a tiny bit faster

    SSD
    Mushkin
    http://mushkin.com/Digital-Storage/S...CL60GB-DX.aspx
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...0deluxe%2060GB

    Corsair
    http://www.corsair.com/products/ssd_force/default.aspx
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...air-_-20233124

    Both uses the same chipset so there tied here. The Mushkin one is Cheaper $144 vs $165 but since newegg is having a sale right now, There tied in price.

    PSU Corsair hands down. Everything else Mushkin doesn't offer. It wouldn't be a fair comparison.

    So the question is Why is Corsair also seems so dominated?

    Re: Mushkin Vs Corsair

    Corsair ftw I love it and my next ram will be 6GB DDR3 Dominator GT

    Never heard of Muskin before but it looks reasonable for the price. And as for looks, unless your gona be building a pc to show off (looks wise) it doesn't matter

    Re: Mushkin Vs Corsair

    Re: Mushkin Vs Corsair

    Redlines are the best choice by far. Corsair, Mushkin and G.SKILL all have the highest quality RAM and customer service, but Corsair just overprices their RAM because people go for them anyway because it's Corsair. The smaller heat sinks is a good thing - less interference with large CPU coolers. As for the SSD, they have the same capacity and read/write speed.

    Re: Mushkin Vs Corsair

    i agree. It just seems like mushkin isn't getting the attention it deserves. I have always bought mushkin. In all 3 of my builds.

    Yep on most other hardware forums, most people only know one word for power supplies and memory. Corsair.

    OCZ doesn't have kits with timings that low, if you're on a lower budget they have great choices along with G.SKILL and some Mushkin kits.

    Actually, OCZ has recently stated they'll be focusing more on their high end products. RAM included. They make the best SSDs too.
