Default OCZ Technology Unveils the XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) Memory Cooler

OCZ Technology Unveils the XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) Memory Cooler.

Sunnyvale, CA—November 16, 2006—OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled the premier memory overclocking accessory, the OCZ XTC Cooler. As active cooling becomes increasingly important for today’s high-speed memory solutions, OCZ developed the XTC Cooler for effective heat management of OCZ’s proprietary XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) modules.

Once installed over the memory subsystem, the XTC Cooler’s dual 60mm fans channel a steady flow of air over and through the XTC modules creating a cooler environment for the memory ICs. For the overclocking enthusiast accustomed to awkwardly propping up case fans, the aluminum-based XTC Cooler is the ultimate air cooling solution.

“To address the requirements of extreme overclockers OCZ is releasing the new XTC cooler which is designed to pair up with the Xtreme Thermal Convection heatspreaders utilized on our entire lineup of premium memory solutions,” commented Alex Mei, OCZ Technology Group, Inc. “This cooler forces airflow through our open Xtreme Thermal Convection heatspreader design to offload even more heat from the entire module array, thus enhancing both stability and performance of the memory, especially when aggressively overclocking.”

Though optimized for use with OCZ’s XTC heatspreaders that come with all OCZ high-performance modules, the XTC Cooler is a beneficial cooling aid for all system memory. Thanks to superior active cooling, the XTC Cooler improves memory performance and longevity for ultimate reliability in desktops to high-end gaming systems. The OCZ XTC Cooler is backed by a 1 year warranty and industry-leading technical support.

Heh......

This is one of those hard to find items that I'm looking for.

Ncix has them listed, but they don't show any stock yet.... wouldn't you know it.... the other two items (side window for Lian-Li case & UV led lights) I was looking for were also listed, but not available......

Ah well... I'll wait until after Christmas and then send them an e-mail asking what happens for shipping when I've placed an order for 3 different items that they don't have in stock.......

This is a pointless product. Buy a fan and strap it to your RAM with an elastic. Sheesh.

Somebody doesn't understand the need for bling.... :)

It's not pointless.... you're right, any fan will do, but the same can be said for any case fan.

oh I understand the need for bling. True bling can never be achieved with some off the shelf product though. Here's my old Althon XP rig. Check out the UV trace mod done with a UV sensitive pen:cool:

Second picture is my current rig.

no carpet under the case? that's gonna leave a scratch on the floor

in all honesty, there's uses for both - I'd prefer to have a sleek cooler like the OCZ rather than a zip-tied fan over my RAM (did that with my VX kit back in the day). But that's just me.

Haha, the case is on rubber feet. It's at my girlfriend's house. The rubber feet are the only reason I don't have to have little pink carpet under it.

Nice looking rigs.

I considered strapping in a fan or two to cool the PWM, and see if I could squeeze an extra 10 Mhz out of my mem to allow me a better divider choice, but the fan from my internal rad seems to do a decent job on the PWM, and then I saw this product available for mem.

In my books, if it serves a purpose, as well as actually looking fairly decent it gets top marks.

I'm not sure if it will do the trick (I haven't seen too many folks getting ELGEGXT-K above 260), but it can't hurt.
