OCZ Technology Offers the World?s Fastest High-Density 4GB DDR3 (Double-Data Rate) Modules Operating at 2133MHz Solution Adds Strength to OCZ?s Memory Division and Offers Prosumers Industry-Leading Frequencies SAN JOSE, CA?July 12, 2010?OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and memory modules for computing devices and systems, unveils new high-speed 4GB (4096MB) modules for users who demand both performance and bandwidth in one memory solution. Giving enthusiasts and prosumers access to not only high-density but also to high-frequency memory kits ensures the system RAM will never be the bottleneck during intensive multi-tasking, gaming, or home server environments. ?Usually high speed and high density don?t go hand in hand, but our newly introduced high density 2133MHz memory solutions are engineered to do exactly that,? said Alex Mei, CMO at the OCZ Technology Group. ?Designed for more than just raw speed, these new kits deliver an excellent blend of performance, density and reliability for a wide range of applications ranging from rendering video to smoother gameplay on the latest titles.? As large, high-definition multi-media files are becoming progressively more ubiquitous in all facets of entertainment, OCZ is addressing the steady need for increased system memory combined with maximum speeds for users looking to take their gaming or productivity to the next level. Engineered for intensive design and editing applications, these 4GB solutions will enable graphic designers, CAD engineers, and music/video professionals to benefit from increased memory resources. From the Flex EX and Reaper HPC Series for experienced overclockers and high-end users to the Platinum Series for entry-level enthusiasts and gamers, OCZ 4GB modules are configured for a variety of needs and budgets. Modules are available in either 8GB dual channel or 12GB triple channel kits and reach industry-leading frequencies up to 2133MHz. All OCZ 4GB modules operate at a low-voltage specification of 1.65V and are tested and qualified on the latest AMD and Intel platforms to ensure ultimate performance and stability. Each module comes backed by the industry-leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind. About OCZ Technology Group, Inc.
Price? OCZ just never stops, they come out with better things everyday! If its not too expensive i might consider this for a new rig i need soon as my current one is just killing me :(. Got to save up some more money first!
What are the timings?
No worries, Inspector, it WILL be "too expensive." If people here can't spend $70 on a wicked fast SSD, they aren't going to pay a premium to get a 4 GB DIMM at more than twice the cost of a comparable 2 GB unit.
At the onset, I'm sure they're aimed at professionals-- CAD/CAM designers etc.-- who need fast memory and lots of it. Gamers tend to imagine they need more than they really do; fitting 16 GB (24 for a Nehalem) into your computer would be overkill at the moment.
Of course, programmers tend to code for the high-end systems (still following Bill Gates' advice of ten years ago) and therefore this amount of memory will be necessary someday. Me? I have yet to fill up those two additional slots on my motherboard.

I agree, It will be expensive and most of us really don't "NEED" it either. On top of that, there are the 'trust issues' associated with water cooled components. I have this nagging "what if it leaks" in the back of my head every time I see those water hose fittings. I understand that it's unreasonable thinking on my part, that such a thing probably wouldn't occur,............but if it did, it would be a catastrophe for someone who can't run out and replace everything at the drop of a hat. (or a water drop anyway)
Additionally, air cooled components work great, cost less, and come without the trust issues I mentioned.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
You can always dream still to have this ram
I have had good experiences with water cooling thus far.
But there is always the chance...
personally. I think it's going to be expensive if people op for 8GBs or more but if it's not them I might go for 8GB's cause that's mostly all the RAM I'll ever need right now.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Unless these chips have hit some nice timings AND high speeds... than all that speed isn't gonna be worth much. It's all about hitting the sweet spot between tight timings and high clock speed.
Water cooling seem like over kill... but if you barely have any air cycling through the system because everything else is water cooled... it might be a good alternative.
