OCZ DDR2 PC2-4200EB
Platinum Ltd. Rev.2
Once again OCZ has provided us with some new and exciting memory
modules. This time we have PC2-4200 Enhanced Bandwidth
Platinum Revision 2 Limited, the newest memory from the OCZ labs. OCZ has listened to the enthusiasts
and have delivered DDR2 memory that utilizes tighter timings. As
enthusiasts we aren't going to settle for RAM with a CAS latency of 4. The memory speed has to be phenomenally fast
to compensate for those loose timings. So, OCZ has released their
Enhanced Bandwidth memory that runs at 533MHz with CAS 3-2-2-8 timings. This
should be tight enough for us to get good performance while leaving us some overclocking headroom. Let's go find out.
It's easy to tell
when you have some OCZ in your case.
Their heatspreaders are extremely shiny. They have a
platinum mirrored finish and they just make you want to stick them on a
chain and wear them to the nightclub. Bling Bling!

After my last experience with the PC2-5400, I have decided not to pull the heatspreader
off of the memory. According to OCZ, they are using Micron DDR2
chips for this memory.
