is well known to most of us, producing quality memory for almost all lines of PCs, home, business, professional as well as catering to enthusiast overclockers. Recently, OCZ provided us with a pair of its latest DDR2 PC2-5400 Gold Dual Channel modules.
The new DDR2 PC2-5400 Platinum XTC Dual Channel 2x512MB modules are DDR2-667 unbuffered, with CL 3-3-3-15 timings and very importantly, come with a lifetime warranty.
According to OCZ, the PC2-5400 EL Platinum XTC Edition, was specifically developed for the extreme gamer and overclocker, to give high end Intel based systems that extra performance edge that is demanded by today’s hardcore gamers and enthusiasts. It 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.
With DDR2-667, these modules turn out heart-pounding 3-3-3 timings with flawless performance and stability. Moreover, this product is 100% hand-tested to ensure compliance with stringent quality standards. In addition, each member of the OCZ Platinum XTC family is backed by an industry-leading lifetime warranty, toll-free technical support and the exclusive EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) coverage.
With its ultra-fast performance, high quality and reliability, the OCZ PC2-5400 Platinum XTC edition is a perfect memory upgrade for next generation Intel platforms.
We noticed that on the memory's label, the timings are indicated as 3-3-3-12 and not 3-3-3-15, as on OCZ's website.
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 off-loaded more efficiently through the honeycomb design. At the same time, mechanical stability is maintained.
