OCZ Announces Intel Extreme DDR3 Kits
OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced the first of its Intel® Extreme triple channel memory series, qualified specifically for the Intel® Core™ i7 processor / Intel® X58 Express Chipset. Optimized for the Core i7’s triple channel mode and featuring Intel XMP profiles designed specifically to enhance the performance of the X58 Chipset, these new 3GB and 6GB kits ensure optimal performance via an ideal combination of low voltage requirements, speed, and instantaneous “out of the box” overclocking with the specialized profiles.

“Intel’s Core i7 architecture is superior in every possible way,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology, “and the world’s best CPU deserves the world’s best memory as a complement. OCZ’s new Triple-Channel XMP kits are a perfect match for the Nehalem platform to unleash performance we could only dream of just a short time ago.”

This latest memory solution implements a high-performance specification optimized and predefined for the Intel X58 chipset. The new 3GB and 6GB kits are rated at DDR3-1333 and feature the all-new Intel branded black XTC heatspreader. With a long history of providing the most innovative products to the enthusiast community, OCZ is excited to take advantage of Intel’s latest development of latest platforms with this new memory series.

These new modules feature Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP), a proprietary extension of SPD (Serial Presence Detect) settings that act as an integrated “plug and play” overclocking feature. The new Extreme Memory Profile options on the new OCZ DDR3 modules allow the end user to select extreme or ultimate performance through a framework of predefined and validated optimizations of individual settings without the hassle of manually adjusting each parameter. Each kit is configured to run aggressive latencies and features a second enthusiast profile to enable the modules to run at an even more aggressive balance of speed and timings.

Developed for enthusiasts and early-adopters, the low voltage OCZ Triple Channel solutions are the choice counterparts for leading-edge performance that won’t inhibit the functionality of Core i7 CPUs. In addition, modules are tested in matched triplets ensuring superior compatibility. Each OCZ XMP memory module is backed by the industry-leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.

Hi all,

I'm in a bit of a tricky situation and would like some advice.

I bought a Twin2X4096-8500 (2x2gb sticks) Corsair Dominator DDR2 pack from ebay over 3 months ago. I built my new system and one of the modules were faulty. So I got back in contact with the seller and he offered to replace it. I posted it back and he said he will send a new module to me once he gets a new stock.

2 weeks later he emailed me stating that the module has been posted by Royal Mail and will be with me within the week. I waited a week and still nothing.

Anyway to cut a long story short, he "Apparently" sent 2 parcels out to me now via RM and I have not received anything. I asked for a tracking number as I requested it to be sent recorded but he didnt do that and just told me its in the mail again.

Now I have got to a point of requesting half the money back and he has agreed and have sent a PayPal money request to him.

The question is... I would like to know if I can....

1) Buy a single 2gb module of the same memory?
2) Does the "Twin" mean they are matching memory and will only work with it's matching pair i.e That came in the pack all those months ago and was broken?

Any help of this would be greatly appreciated as I am at my wits end now and just want some resolution.

U cannot buy a single memory to replace a 2X1 gig dual channel memory... Bottom line U are screwed... Hoping to save some money on EBAY it end up costing you more... U have a big heart trusting ebay especially computer stuff....

Fusion as far as I know, If you can find another 2GB DDR2 8500 Module you should have no problem. They must have exactly the same timings other wise the faster module will run as slow as the slowest module.

It will make things a damn side easier if your looking to overclock them too..

Check the model number on the module you have and try finding your self a supplier via google.

Thanks for your replies. I have managed to get hold of the chap from ebay and he has offered a full refund once I told him that they were sold as a matching pair. So now I am getting some new memory delivered today via city-link.
