OCZ Technology Group, a well-known maker of memory products for enthusiasts and overclockers, on Monday unveiled its new memory modules designed for those, who call themselves hardcore enthusiasts. The new products are rated to work at 1150MHz (1.15GHz) and may allow overclocking potential beyond when cooled using liquid.

“The new OCZ FlexXLC series – featuring an exciting, novel hybrid water and air cooler based on OCZ’s embedded copper liquid injection system – pushes thermal management of memory modules one step further to keep up with the ever-increasing frequency demands. Moreover, the FlexXLC modules seamlessly co-migrate with any system upgrade to liquid cooling,” said commented Dr. Michael Schuette, vice president of technology development at OCZ Technology Group.

OCZ’s eXtreme Liquid Convection (XLC) memory modules come with large heat-sinks and feature built-in pipes for liquid cooling. OCZ itself does not produce liquid-cooling systems or supply them along with XLC memory modules, hence, end-users should acquire the liquid pumps themselves.

OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 FlexXLC Edition modules are rated to run at 1150MHz with CL5 5-5-18 latency settings with 2.35V power supply. In order to make the modules more stable, OCZ not only had to boost the voltage to unbelievable levels, but also to start using 8-layer print-circuit boards (PCBs), which are substantially more expensive compared to PCBs with less layers. OCZ says that when liquid-cooling is utilized, 1200MHz clock-speed is achievable with the new memory modules.

The PC2-9200 FlexXLC modules are optimized for the latest platforms and will be available in 2GB (2x1024MB) dual-channel kits. The new modules will start shipping on Monday, the 27th of November, and will retail for around $599 per dual-channel kit.
