Default "World's fastest" 4GB DDR2 kit by OCZ

Quote:
Sunnyvale, CA—April 10, 2008—OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled the Flex II memory series, designed for blazing speeds demanded by enthusiasts. These premium modules run at incredibly fast DDR2-1150 speeds for high-performance systems with integrated water-cooling. Designed to the very core to offer enthusiasts the thermal management innovation of hybrid water and passive cooling, the new PC2-9200 Flex II Series offers rock-solid stability and performance for your high-end gaming or overclocking system.

This seems pretty cool, hopefully reviews will be out soon. In my opinion, this generation of the "FLEX" design is a lot better than the last, and RyderOCZ also said that the modules can run factory speeds at a mere "1.9 - 2.1V".

They did a good job on the marketing for this. Im curious to see prices and H20 vs. fan performance.

Cant wait to see reviews for these puppies as well. looks like interesting stuff! Ram waterblocks ftw? =P
Im wondering if these will help the ram gain more mhz/better timings than just being cooled =P
I think the design has two many barbs which, means more tubing + loops = less flowrate, if anyone is going with these they'd Better ante up the doh to up the flow lol
Nice find Wankerfx, looking forward to seeing the benchmark on these badboys.

I'm expecting a ~20Mhz gain from water cooling the ram. Usually, a fan on top of the modules yields the best price:performance ratio.

World fastest 4GB ram in the world's most restrictive water cooling loop? Why not set two records at once? ;)

It's too bad these are too thick to let 4 modules in. We could see some crazy 8GB benchmarks. If they don't cost to much, and preform well I might have to repalce my 4 sticks of 6400 with two sticks of that.

Just take the heatspreaders off, then you can run 8GB =)

What speed were they? Anything under PC2-7200 for older model ram were usually Elpida's or ProMOS.
