Mushkin Blackline Ridgeback DDR4 2400MHz 16GB Memory Kit Review

Overclocking


During the overclocking procedure, I managed to increase the memory’s frequency to 2780MHz with a small voltage boost to 1.35V. Notice, this was achieved using the tight stock timings of 15-15-15-35, and 2T command rate. Initially, I did try to loosen the timings and reach a higher memory speed with 17-17-17-38, but this had zero impact on stability.  As a result, once the maximum frequency was discovered, I optimized the timings to find the lowest possible CAS rating. As you can see from the overclocking results, an increase of 470MHz is superb for a value-orientated kit.
