When it comes to memory, and RGB memory more specifically it is really hard to set yourself apart from the hundreds of other kits out there. With the Redline Lumina I really don’t think Mushkin has done a whole lot to really make them stand out from the crowd. The heatspreaders are pretty basic, the RGB lighting is very much what you see from all other kits, and the speeds and timings are nothing to write home about either.
That is not to say this isn’t good memory, with its speed of 3600 MHz with XMP-set timings of 16-19-19-39 at 1.4V it performed well in all of our tests. If you pick this memory up I don’t feel you are going to be disappointed with it. We were able to push this memory up to 4000 MHz by loosening the timings to 19-19-19-43 at 1.42V. No a massive overclock, but a little more performance.
The RGB lighting as I said is sort of what you see from many other memory makers out there, a simple diffuser on top of the module. You can easily control the RGB lighting with Mushkin’s RGB software or your motherboard’s RGB software as the memory is compatible with all major motherboard RGB software out there.
And that brings us to price, right now this kit is selling for $179.99, which puts it in the same category as many other 32GB 3600 MHz RGB kits. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Mushkin Redline Lumina DDR4-3600 32GB Memory Kit a 9 out of 10 score.
– Available in both black and white versions
