Default OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper HPC Review: Madshrimps

These babies are on sale right now for $150 CAD - worth a look!

"When OCZ introduces a new enthusiast series, we´d like to take it out

compare its performance to 9 other high end contestants. Can the new
sibling from OCZ differentiate itself in the crowded DDR2 market?
Let's find out."

Some weird binning right there. The same happened with my set of reapers and they did best with CL5.

Nice deal.
