- Retail package

Mushkin provided us with the retail package of its XP2-6400 (2x2GB). Mushkin sells the modules directly, at a retail price of $500. The retail kit is nothing fancy, with just the two modules packaged in a protective plastic shell.

The memory modules are encased in black aluminum heatspreaders, giving a special "color" to your system. Mushkin calls these "FrostByte heatspreaders", which are supposed to offer superior thermal efficiency to improve durability and performance. We will see later in our review, exactly how and if FrostByte heatsinks help or not. On both sides of the heatspreader, there is the "Mushkin" logo, while on one side is a sticker with part numbers and other manufacturing information.

The product is rated to work at 800MHz with 4-3-3-10 timings.

Keep in mind, that in order to take full advantage of the 2x2GB modules, you need a 64bit operating system, like XP x64bit edition or VISTA 64bit.

Under Windows XP/Vista 32bit, only 2.75GB will be recognizable:
