OCZ PC3500 Gold Gamer eXtreme Edition DDR Memory
The OCZ PC3500 Gold Gamer eXtreme Edition DDR memory is a really good example of how you can make memory modules look good, without going overboard with fancy, blinking LEDs.
Each module is covered by two gold-plated heatspreaders, whose mirror-finish really lends it an aura of class and elegance. The embossed OCZ logo also gives it a more stylish look. If you are looking for memory modules with a touch of class, the OCZ Gold Edition series is certainly something you should consider.
Of course, we don't buy memory modules for their bling-bling factor. The OCZ PC3500 Gold Gamer eXtreme Edition memory is rated to run at 433MHz DDR at ultra-tight timings of 2-2-2-5.
In addition, it officially supports a voltage of 2.8V to 3.1V. This allows you to push the memory module to its limits when you overclock. We will see if that's true when we test these memory modules for our comprehensive review.
These modules are targeted at gamers who want nothing but the fastest ultra-low latency modules at, without paying through the nose for premium memory. The use of cheaper Winbond UTT memory chips allow OCZ to do just that. It also comes with gold-finished heatspreaders, official support for voltages up to 3.1V as well as a lifetime warranty!
If these advantages are what you are looking for, the PC3500 Gold Gamer eXtreme Edition memory is certainly something you should consider.
