The heatpipe that is used in the modules design is not just unnecessary: it also increases the height of the memory modules making OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 Reaper HPC Edition 66mm tall. The use of heatpipe technology for OCZ Reaper HPC modules could only be justified if the heatsink above the memory subsystem were larger than the standard memory module dimensions. However, it is not the case here.
So, the copper heatpipe of the modules we are discussing today is more of a decorative element, which goes very well with the black aluminum plates and heatsinks. The stylish finishing touch to the exterior looks of OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 Reaper HPC Edition is the company logo on one side of the module and the white sticker on the other. By the way, this sticker carries information on the product part number, speed, timing and capacity.
The memory modules SPD contain the data ensuring the kit’s compatibility with all mainboards. The actual specifications should be stored in the EPP. The profile does contain the correct timings, however, the working voltage is 0.2V lower. As for the working frequency, I have to complain once again about the Everest utility that doesn’t provide the correct reading.
Summing up a few things I have to say that if we disregard the cooling system of the OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 Reaper HPC Edition for a while, then they will be close relatives to OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 FlexXLC Edition. Both products are built using the same Micron D9GMH (B6-3) chips that are actually used for the majority of high-frequency DDR2 SDRAM memory modules for advanced users out there.
