OCZ PC2-6400 Platinum
ClubOC has been reviewing OCZ products for a very long time and it's
always nice to receive a new review sample. This time was a little
different. When I opened the box and saw PC2-6400, the first
thought that went through my mind was, "Can I run that fast?". An
800MHz memory speed is nothing to laugh at, but a closer inspection of
the test board revealed an 800MHz setting at default bus speed.
That's good news because that leaves me plenty of overclocking headroom
to see what the memory is really capable of.
Available in 512MB

* XTC (Xtreme Thermal
Convection) heatspreaders optimize the thermal management of memory
modules by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection
throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional
heatspreader designs. In this manner, build-up of heat is avoided and
thermal dissipation of the memory components is offloaded more
efficiently through the honeycomb design. At the same time, mechanical
stability is maintained.
**OCZ EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) is a feature that allows
performance enthusiasts to use a VDIMM of 2.2V ± 5% without invalidating
their OCZ Lifetime Warranty.
The timings of DDR2 have
never been anything to brag about, but with ungodly bus speeds DDR2 can
make up for it. CAS 4 at 400MHz (800MHz DDR) isn't too shabby
