Cebit 2010: Ridgeback and Copperhead

We had
a chance to drop by Mushkin during Cebit and take some neat pictures of Mushkin's new memory kits. The new kit will be called Ridgeback, while the Copperhead is already well known as these massive heatsinks certainly leave an impression, especially if they are paired up with a Copperhead waterblock.

The Ridgeback heatsink will be available in gaming and enthusiasts memory lineup and Mushkin will include these on two DDR3-1600 kits for Intel's LGA1366 and LGA1156 platforms and at two different latency levels. The new heatsink will also be used on a DDR2-1066 tight latency kit as well.

996826 – 4GB (2x2GB) PC3-12800 6-8-6-24 1.65V Ridgeback
998826 – 6GB (3x2GB) PC3-12800 6-8-6-24 1.65V Ridgeback
998827 – 6GB (3x2GB) PC3-12800 8-8-8-24 1.65V Ridgeback
996828 – 4GB (2x2GB) PC2-8500 5-5-5-15 2.1V Ridgeback

The Copperhead heatsinks are a top-notch offer from Mushkin and these have already been announced, but this is the first time that we have held them in our hands. We honestly don't know how much performance can you squeeze out of memory modules by slapping a big chunk of copper on them but we must agree that it at least looks impressive. The Copperhead water block looks even meaner and this one has some serious weight and we doubt that this one is made purely for the looks.

The one we had a chance to see is a dual-channel kit working at 1600MHz with 6-8-6-24 latencies at 1.65V but we are sure that these can reach even higher clocks or tighter latencies once you put some water into that big Copperhead water block.
