For this review I am going to be looking at a new piece of hardware from OCZ. It is a product that OCZ are, probably, most well known for a new memory solution, not just ANY memory though this is one of the sets from the water cooled Flex XLC series, yes that’s right its WATER COOLED as standard. As I am a fan of OCZ’s memory I have some pretty high hopes for the Flex XLC.
Before moving onto the review, here is some background on OCZ taken from the OCZ website.
"Entering the memory market in August 2000, OCZ Technology was built around the determination to manufacture the best high speed DDR and RDRAM. OCZ was founded by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts, and our commitment to the end-user has not digressed. OCZ Technology has been an innovator in many areas. OCZ were the first manufacturer to make Dual Channel optimized memory available to the public, which originally took advantage of NVIDIA’s Twinbank or Dual DDR architecture, found in their nForce chipset. We have now taken that technology and tailored it for the Canterwood, and Granite Bay chipset's. OCZ developed and was the first to implement ULN technology, which has been a critical element in our manufacturing process for some time.
OCZ diligently work to improve communication with CPU and motherboard chipset manufacturers prior to the release of their products. Only in this manner can we fine-tune our memory's SPD settings, ensuring a synergistic relationship between the memory module, memory controller, and microprocessor. In today’s rapidly evolving semiconductor industry, such communication is not simply research, but a necessary component of our manufacturing process.
OCZ offer a Lifetime warranty on every memory module they sell and back this warranty with friendly, courteous staff that is willing to answer any question. At OCZ, if a staff member cannot answer your question, they will be forthright and put you in touch with a technician or engineer who can properly assist you. OCZ Technology is in tune with the needs of enthusiasts and overclockers alike, because we are just like you. Chances are you may have already spoken with an OCZ employee in a hardware forum, as we do bring our work home. OCZ seek motivated, qualified applicants, whom already have a firm grasp, and a passion for the PC. OCZ technicians are available to answer your questions anytime, and our "technical" section can be referenced at anytime.
OCZ have come from the grass-roots to bring you to new heights, and our products speak for themselves. There is a reason OCZ is considered the best memory on the market and that reason is that we will not settle for anything less then perfect." As you can see OCZ have some history and with that in mind let us move on and look at the ram itself
