OCZ PC2-8000 Titanium Alpha VX2 Dual Channel

Introduction

Manufacturers have now pretty much abandonded the old DDR1 ram sticks and started selling their new faster DDR2 with lower latency and higher mhz count. OCZ are no different they have stayed on the top of the market by producing awesome overclocking ram in the past therefore it will be very interesting to see how their new DDR2 kit named OCZ PC2-8000 Titanium Alpha VX2 Dual Channel will perform.

About Ocz:

Entering the memory market in August 2000, OCZ Technology was built around the determination to manufacture the best high speed DDR and RDRAM. OCZ was founded by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts, and our commitment to the end-user has not digressed. OCZ Technology has been an innovator in many areas. We were the first manufacturer to make Dual Channel optimized memory available to the public, which originally took advantage of nVidia’s Twinbank or Dual DDR architecture, found in their nForce chipset.

We have now taken that technology and tailored it for the Canterwood, and Granite Bay chipset’s. OCZ developed and was the first to implement ULN technology, which has been a critical element in our manufacturing process for some time.We at OCZ diligently work to improve communication with CPU and motherboard chipset manufacturers prior to the release of their products. Only in this manner can we fine-tune our memory’s SPD settings, ensuring a synergistic relationship between the memory module, memory controller, and microprocessor. In today�s rapidly evolving semiconductor industry, such communication is not simply research, but a necessary component of our manufacturing process.

Special Features
Voltage eXtreme DDR2 (VX2)
2.4V EVP**

* 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 2.4V � 5% without invalidating their OCZ Lifetime Warranty.

The memory kit comes packed in a standard OCZ memory package with the packed in a see through plastic cover with a small paper slip that has their logo and name of the memory kit on it, on the back of it you can read a few quotes from different websites that have awarded their ram in the past.

This ram kits are from the Titanium series so therefore the Titanium color is on them also. The heatsinks have been along for quite sometime now and they have really proved to be a good invention from OCZ as they help you to keep the ram cooler which makes it more stable also. On each ram stick you will find a small sticker that gives you the specifications for your ram sticks. It’s time for us to take a look at some test results to see how this kit really does perform.
