OCZ Technology is a household name for the modern PC Builder. Their latest creation in a long line of high grade products is the XTC 2 RAM cooler. With stunning looks it is bound to capture the spotlight in a very small market of active RAM cooling.
The best lesson any manufacturer can learn is when not to mess with a good design too much. Many of us have used or at least seen the original XTC Cooler. With a polished metal finish and twin LED fans, it was an eye catcher to anyone with a Clear Side Case. Adding function to form it featured 60mm Fans to help keep your hot running RAM in check.
The XTC 2 follows closely on that same lineage and boasts a pair of 60mm LED Fans as well. What has changed however is the module in which these fans are housed.
With the advent of taller and taller heat spreaders being added to RAM some change was required in order to make the XTC 2 more compatible with existing designs. OCZ accomplished this by placing the fans in a new, taller mounting platform. As well they gave the brushed aluminum a black finish. Adding to its already imposing looks.
The XTC 2 measures in at 81mm x 68mm x 148mm with brackets installed. Which should make it a sure fit on all but the most radical of Memory Heat Spreaders.
