Phoronix: OCZ Reaper HPC 2GB PC2-8500
Earlier this year we had reviewed OCZ's Flex XLC memory, which was great if you planned on water cooling your memory with its Xtreme Liquid Convection heatspreaders, but if water near your computer system frights you, OCZ recently introduced a new alternative that uses a heat-pipe conduit for cooling your DDR2 memory. This cooper cooling solution is patent-pending and is designed to transfer the heat away from the memory through the copper heat-pipe and to an aluminum fin array. The memory at hand today is the OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 Reaper HPC edition, which runs at DDR2-1066 with 5-5-5-15 timings and is backed by an OCZ lifetime warranty.
