Platinum Revision 2
Wow!! Do you know how many times
I've started a review with the word "WOW"? This is my first time.
It's not too often that a product like this will get me excited enough to say
"wow". But I have to admit that when I was testing this stuff, I was
laughing out loud in excitement. OCZ really did a great job with this
memory. They have been stepping up to the plate for a while now.
Usually they are the first to come out with the ultra high performing memory.
But if someone beats them to the market with something, it's usually only a
short time before OCZ comes out with something better. I, like most of the
staff, was very impressed with the Corsair memory that Matt reviewed a few weeks
ago. We just thought that was the pinnacle for 3200 performance. Man
were we wrong. Keep reading to find out why.
OCZ covers their memory with their usual flashy heat
spreaders. OCZ takes a high quality copper heat spreader and gives it a
mirrored platinum finish, the result is very impressive and will be something
you will want to show off in your windowed case.
Available in 512MB and a 1GB (2x512MB) Dual Channel Optimized Kit
Mirrored Platinum Copper Heatspreader
184 Pin DIMM
