Most manufacturers just adapted their old and proven heatsink design to their new DDR 4 memory, but not so Mushkin. They have created the new and elegant looking Ridgeback heatsink for the Blackline and Redline memory modules.
The new heatsinks are cut from aircraft-grade aluminium and each module is hand tested and validated on motherboards from all major manufacturers. The Ridgeback DDR4 modules naturally feature XMP 2.0 profiles for easy setup with Intel X99 platforms and the latest Core i7 processors.
Seen below is the current Redline design that while being efficient, isn’t the most beautiful to look at. The new design is a welcome addition to otherwise great memory modules.
The new Ridgeback DDR4 modules are officially scheduled to launch within Q1 2015.
