1. Introduction - Description & Specs

OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Platinum Revision 2

is a well known company producing quality memory for almost all lines of PC users, from amateurs to enthusiast overclockers. As a leading company in the memory field, it recently introduced a product called "OCZ EL PC-3200 Dual Channel Platinum Revision 2" that promised low latency times (CL2@400MHz). While the memory is rated only PC-3200, as we will see in the course of this review it has amazing potential. OCZ's memory is of interest to users who wish to reach maximum overclocking speeds while at the same time achieving the best memory performance. Through our tests, we will find out just how the memory performs and what the maximum possible overclocking limit is.

- Memory Description & Specs

The OCZ EL PC-3200 Dual Channel Platinum Revision 2 comes as a dual channel kit (2 x 512MB) and according to OCZ is hand tested as a matched pair to ensure flawless performance on most motherboards. Each memory module has a high quality copper heat spreader with a platinum mirrored finish. It can handle up to 2.9V without voiding the OCZ Lifetime Warranty! This is important, as it allows users to tweak their systems without worrying about destroying their memory while enjoying maximum performance!

The OCZ EL PC-3200 Dual Channel Platinum Revision 2 comes with the "EL" suffix. But what does "EL" mean? EL is the acronym from 'Enhanced Latency', and is a special design procedure applied to each memory module allowing it to run at tighter CAS latency timings than those specified under the current JEDEC standards.

The memory specifications according to the OCZ website are:

- 400MHz DDR
- CL 2-2-2-5
- Available in 512MB and a 1GB (2x512MB) Dual Channel Optimized Kit
- Unbuffered
- Mirrored Platinum Copper Heatspreader
- Lifetime Warranty
- nominal voltage 2.75 Volts
- 184 Pin DIMM

The retail kits are available in a 512MB Module (PN - OCZ400512ELPER2) and a 1GB Dual Channel Kit (PN - OCZ4001024ELDCPER2-K). For this review we used the 1GB retail Kit.

The retail kit also includes a case and a stick-on badge for those who want to use it to show-off their OCZ advanced memory powered system.
