OCZ PC2-6400 Gold Edition DDR2 Memory
The OCZ PC2-6400 Gold Edition DDR2 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 Gold Edition series is certainly something you should look for.
Of course, we don't buy memory modules for their bling-bling factor. The OCZ PC2-6400 is capable of running at 800MHz at 5-5-5-10. That's faster than standard DDR2-800 memory because of the tighter latencies.
In addition, the OCZ PC2-6400 officially supports a voltage of 1.9V to 2.2V. 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.
The OCZ Gold Edition series is targeted at gamers who are looking for high clock speeds at tight timings, without paying through the nose for ultra-low latency memory. The OCZ PC2-6400 Gold Edition certainly offers that. It also comes with gold-finished heatspreaders, official support for voltages up to 2.2V as well as a lifetime warranty!
Therefore, if those advantages are what you are looking for, the PC2-6400 Gold Edition memory is certainly something you should consider.
