OCZ PC2-8000 Titanium Alpha VX2 DDR2 Memory Kit
The OCZ PC2-8000 Titanium Alpha VX2 DDR2 Memory Kit is a hallmark of OCZ engineering - unique, innovative, daring. It pushes the boundary of DDR2 performance, with a marked emphasis on overvolting.
As such, it isn't surprising to see these modules use the XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders. The XTC heatspreaders with its honeycomb design, is supposed to greatly improve the cooling of memory chips. That would be really important when the memory chips are overvolted as much as these chips are.
It's also good to note that OCZ is backing up these memory modules with a lifetime warranty. No matter how overclocked or overvolted the memory chips in these memory modules are, you can be assured of a replacement from OCZ should anything untoward happen to the modules.
These modules use the Micron D9 GMH DDR2 memory chips which are reputed to be very overclockable. Of course, this is evident in the fact that OCZ essentially overclocked it from its maximum rated clock speed of 800MHz DDR at 5-5-5 to 1GHz DDR at just 4-4-4! Just how much more overclockable these modules are is another question altogether.Although you can buy a single 1GB module, the dual-channel memory kit offers 2GB of memory, a sweet spot for many gamers. Even graphics artists and photo editors would love the performance boost 2GB of memory offers.
This memory kit is certainly worth checking out if you are in the market for PC2-8000 DDR2 SDRAM to play with. With a lifetime warranty and coverage of voltages of up to 2.52 V, you will have ample opportunity to tweak and polish this diamond until it shines! For case modders, the unique multi-coloured titanium XTC heatspreaders is just the thing you need to add a touch of mystery to your case mod.

* Our New Review System
ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a new review system.
This new review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.
In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.
When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.
After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.
But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.
We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
