Mushkin ECO2 Memory Fits Under Oversized CPU Coolers
Mushkin today launched its ECO2 line of DDR3 memory modules designed to accommodate the needs of budget-minded users who overclock their systems. The memory features a sleek, low-profile heatsink design meant to fit motherboards with an oversized CPU cooler.
The memory operates at a lower voltage (1.35V versus the standard 1.5V) which inflicts less stress to the CPU memory controller and allows for more headroom when overclocking, along with modest energy savings.
As for compatibility, the lower voltage ECO2 memory will work in any motherboard slot designed for 1600 MHz DDR3. Need help finding compatible with your CPU and motherboard? See: How to Choose the Correct RAM Upgrade

Even though ECO2 memory is marketed towards gamers, users of all stripes should appreciate the value price point. “The goal is to offer the lowest prices on Newegg,” says Mushkin’s Payton Armour. Right now the value buy are the 16 GB memory kits (2 x 8 GB) which are selling for $84.99. Compare this pricing with other desktop memory modules on NeweggBusiness.

“The success of our ECO2 SSDs proved to us that users are not just looking for another run-of-the-mill SSD or memory module, which is why we developed something more efficient and cost-effective,” says Brian Flood, Director of Product Management.
We have seen the ECO2 line of solid-state drives boast some of the best per-GB value on the market for 2.5-inch SATA solid-state drives this year.
