OCZ Technology Announces Ultra-Fast, Enhanced Latency DDR3-2000 Featuring the Latest Flex II Water-Cooling Technology

Sunnyvale, CA—April 17, 2008—OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled a blazing fast DDR3 addition to the new Flex II memory series. These premium modules run at incredibly fast 2000MHz speeds at CL8-8-8 timings for added performance to high-end 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 PC3-16000 Flex II Series offers rock-solid stability and performance for your high-end gaming or overclocking system.

The OCZ Flex II heat management solution enables high-frequency memory to operate within an optimal balance of extreme speeds and low latencies without the high temperatures that inhibit or damage the module. Each PC3-16000 Flex II memory module features this breakthrough thermal management technology from OCZ that combines an effective new heatspreader design with integrated liquid injection system and dedicated channels directly over the module’s ICs to effectively dissipate heat produced by high-speed memory. This sophisticated series was engineered with a unique “flexible” design to give enthusiasts the option to run the modules passively or water cooled via the thick array of aluminum fins, and the concurrent use of both options promotes maximum heat dissipation.

 

“A data rate of 2GHz was unthinkable only a year ago,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “Power consumption and heat generation directly follow the operating frequency; therefore, the thermal dissipation of these modules exceeds any specifications of the original design and requires the most advanced thermal solution that will reliably work under any conditions. Whether in a water-cooling environment or else under air-cooling conditions, the legacy of the Flex series continues with the Flex II design as the most advanced memory cooling solution for the fastest modules out there.”

Like the FLEX I memory, I like the integrated water cooling solution. Although a lot of people were saying the FLEX I memory wasn't too impressive as far as performance, this set of ram looks pretty decent. 8-8-8 timings arn't out of wack for high performance memory over 1600 MHz... hopefully, the modules function properly :)

im still chugging along on my ddr1. ddr3-2000 seems really really good, but latency wise i want something around 3-5 since im used to seeing that with ddr, seriously ddr3 needs to really lower latency.... same with ddr2 good ddr1 ram outpeforms bad ddr2 with high latency even when ddr2 is at higher speed..
