A leading supplier of advanced hardware for computer enthusiasts – OCZ Technology – announced that its recently unveiled liquid-cooling heat-sinks for memory modules would be installed onto mainstream 800MHz parts, allowing end-users to overclock them more efficiently.
OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 FlexXLC Edition modules are rated to run at 800MHz with CL4 4-4-15 latency settings with 2.0V power supply. End-users will be able to boost voltage to 2.2V levels without losing OCZ’s lifetime warranty.
“The overwhelming demand for our first Flex XLC modules shows us that this design is exactly what ultimate enthusiasts are looking for. To ensure that none of our customers feel left out, we are releasing a more affordable, lower voltage 800MHz version of our flagship memory product with built-in headroom for those who really want to explore the benefits of overclocking,” said Dr. Michael Schuette, vice president of technology development at OCZ Technology.
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.
The new PC2-6400 memory modules from OCZ will be supplied in 2GB matched pairs, which consist of two 1GB modules. It is unclear how much the new OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 FlexXLC Edition will cost.
