OCZ Technology Group Introduces New Flex EX Performance Memory Series, Including the World’s Fastest Flexible Designed Air or Water Cooled DDR2 4GB Kit Available OC3D Official Press Release

OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled the Flex EX memory series, featuring breakneck speeds demanded by enthusiasts in an updated compact form factor to maximize memory configurations on your motherboard. These premium high-density modules operate at incredibly fast DDR2 and DDR3 speeds to run the latest memory-intensive games and applications, and offer enthusiasts the thermal management necessary for the stability and performance on high-end gaming and overclocking systems.

Offering some of the industry’s fastest modules to date, the Flex EX series encompasses the needs of enthusiasts, power users, and gamers with incredible frequencies up to DDR3-2000, and DDR2-1200 as the fastest DDR2 4GB kit available. The Flex EX Series has a specifically tailored configuration for all users to maximize the performance for all types of systems.

OCZ Flex EX Memory“Memory is the primary storage device of any modern computer system and defines how fast the CPU can access data,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “Density, frequency, and access latencies of the system memory are the critical factors for overall performance of any PC and that is where the new OCZ Flex Ex series sets new standards by providing the optimal combination of the three factors for any system architecture by offering unprecedented speed and latencies at 4GB density with advanced cooling options to enhance stability and performance in even the most demanding environments.”

The OCZ Flex EX thermal management solution enables high-frequency memory to operate within an optimal balance of extreme speeds and low latencies without the high temperatures that inhibit or damage the module. Each Flex EX memory module features the integrated liquid injection system design which originated in the OCZ Flex XLC (Xtreme Liquid Convection) Series. This latest series was engineered with a “flexible” all-aluminum design to give enthusiasts the option to run the modules water-cooled or passively via the array of aluminum fins, and the concurrent use of both options promotes maximum heat dissipation.

The new Flex EX series will be initially available in these high-end solutions for gamers and overclockers utilizing water or passive cooling:

OCZ PC2-9600 Flex EX 4GB (2x2GB) 1200MHz CL 6-6-6-18 @ 2.2V

OCZ PC2-6400 Flex EX 4GB (2X2GB) 800MHz CL 4-4-3-15 @ 2.1V

OCZ PC3-12800 Flex EX 4GB (2x2GB) 1600MHz CL 7-6-6-24 @ 1.9V

OCZ PC3-16600 Flex EX 4GB (2x2GB) 2000MHz CL 8-8-8-30 @ 2.0V

The Flex EX modules are optimized for the latest cutting-edge platforms and will be available in 4GB (2x2048MB) dual channel kits for ultimate bandwidth. As part of OCZ’s line-up of premium memory, the Flex EX series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.

Is it necessary to have a sound card for this speakers: Logitech® "X Series" Speaker System - X540 - 5.1 Channel Speaker System - 75w RMS Peak Power

What difference would a sound card make. Would you notice it while playing games?

13-12-2008, 16:10:39

a soundcard would mean that the sound sounded better
but it depends what your motherboard is at the moment, and what soundcard that is
to be honest, both will do the job, but its perfectionists that like sound from a soundcard as it is improved...albeit marginally.

basically, if you have the money, do it, if you dont, so be it :)

In my experience a soundcard is a great investment, it really did make my music on my PC sound better, and can work wonders on MP3. I THINK I have the sa\me speakers as you so I know what onboard and soundcard audio sounds like and like stated, if you have £50 spare, go for it, I didn't regret it

13-12-2008, 18:31:24

If your an audiophile, then yes, buy a sound card. They're highly worth it, just make sure you pick the right one. :)

Id avoid creative now from my experience

good cards, bad support/drivers


14-12-2008, 17:09:48

I'd like to recommend M-Audio if you want absolutely killer sound (they make pro studio cards), but I dont actually have any experience with them personally. Auzentech make some lovely stuff too...


14-12-2008, 18:28:56


Auzen for the card.

If u have Realtak ALC888/9 or above, I'm not so sure I'd bother unless u wanted to molest the sound cos the quality isn't as good.

Soon as I get a digital box with 4+ inputs, I'm gonna get rid of all my sound cards.

I'd agree there, one update per 7 centuries.

Thought about Asus` soundcard offering, the Xonar. Seem to recal reading a thread somewhere saying their drivers werent much better than Creatives though /shrug.

23-12-2008, 18:42:48

The drivers aren't terrible, I can't run bioshock with EAX on, but I can run it with just regualr 7.1. Crysis runs fantastically, Oblivion runs much better (not perfect, tho there are many reasons for a C2D every ****ing half hour) since the new drivers came out (october I think. They aren't very good at getting drivers out, but at least the card is pretty much useable.
From my experience, the "sound card" that came with the S2E was slightly better than regular on board sound ( possibly due to having its own in built processor?) but the D2X is excellent. It almost makes spending £300 on headphones worth it (yes I did). Even on the cheap speakers I've got (RMS about 70 watts total) it sounds great.
I second the comments about creatives...I've got friends who have complained at the once a millenia driver releases.
