OCZ is a company that is gaining more and more of the limelight every day. This has been achieved through carefully planned marketing strategies coupled with quality products that exceed every demanding user's highest expectations. Some unique and innovative products that have the OCZ signature include the DDR Power Booster, high quality memory modules and their new line of high quality power supplies.
We recently received OCZ's DDR2 PC2-4200 Gold GX XTC Dual Channel modules, a new pair of modules with very promising features.
According to the manufacturer, the new OCZ PC2-4200 Gold Edition was developed with gamers’ distinctive needs in mind. The latest generation of PC games, such as Battlefield 2, Half Life 2 and Doom 3, require large capacity memory to deliver the most powerful, stable system performance. The PC-4200 Gold Edition is the ultimate memory solution for contemporary graphics-intensive PC titles and provides unsurpassed reliability and performance to unleash every graphics possibility.
The new OCZ PC2-4200 Gold GX Edition utilizes the latest OCZ heatspreader design. XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) Heatspreaders allow increased ventilation and heat dissipation due to an innovative honeycomb design providing more direct access to the actual memory ICs.
As part of the award winning OCZ Gold GX series, the PC2-4200 Gold DDR2 edition is built with leading edge technology designed and qualified with special selection of premium components to maximize performance when playing even the most demanding games. As DDR2-533, these modules turn out heart-pounding 4-4-4 timings with flawless performance and stability.
OCZ PC2-4200 products are 100% hand-tested to ensure compliance with stringent quality standards. In addition, each member of the OCZ Gold GX PC2-4200 family is backed by an industry-leading lifetime warranty, toll-free technical support and the exclusive EVP® (Extended Voltage Protection) coverage.

* XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders optimize the thermal management of memory modules by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional heatspreader designs. In this manner, build-up of heat is avoided and thermal dissipation of the memory components is offloaded more efficiently through the honeycomb design. At the same time, mechanical stability is maintained.
EVP : (Extended Voltage Protection) is a feature that allows performance enthusiasts to use a VDIMM of 2.2V ± 5% without invalidating their OCZ Lifetime Warranty.
