Default Mushkin 4GB XP2-8500

Mushkin is the only memory company right now to offer 4GB extreme performance kits, with their top-end offering on our test bench today. Despite the fact that it already has high stock speeds, we were surprised to find out that it still had a lot of overclocking headroom.

You can read the full review here and discuss it here.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

Holy Crap! $700!

While I can certainly appreciate a 2x2gb kit that performs like this, I'd sooner spend $450 on 4x1gb, and deal with the hassle of mounting a 120mm fan over them. $250 could buy a LOT of fan.
