OCZ Technology Announces the Worlds First 4GB NVIDIA® SLITM Certified Kits


The OCZ PC2-6400 4GB SLI-Ready Series is the optimal memory solution for current and upcoming DirectX® 10 graphic-intensive PC titles and provides unsurpassed reliability and performance to unleash every graphic possibility. For enthusiasts, gamers, and system-builders using Windows® Vista™ as their choice operating system and who need the performance of high-speed memory, these newest PC2-6400 4GB Kits are the ultimate SLI certified memory upgrade to increase your system responsiveness. The new high-density OCZ PC2-6400 4GB SLI-Ready Series is equipped with NVIDIA Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) to optimize the modules’ gaming performance on nForce® SLI-based motherboards.

“There are increasingly more games that are now taking advantage of DirectX® 10 being introduced, and consumers need more memory to take full advantage of the enhanced details and effects within the games,” said Alex Mei, Chief Marketing Officer, OCZ Technology Group. “OCZ is proud to be the first memory manufacturer to offer an SLI Certified 4GB solution for gamers seeking for a perfect blend of high density and easy overclocking right out of the box on NVIDIA platforms.”

As part of the NVIDIA SLI technology ecosystem, these modules undergo a rigorous series of tests by NVIDIA and are certified to provide enthusiasts and gamers the performance, compatibility, and stability they seek when building an SLI gaming system. Tailored specifically for the NVIDIA gamer, each OCZ 4GB PC2-6400 certified memory kit features the exclusive black SLI-Ready XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreader for the most efficient heat dissipation, and a look that stands out like its performance.

OCZ PC2-6400 4GB SLI-Ready memory modules are programmed to boot at 800MHz DDR2 with tight timings of 5-4-4. Only motherboards equipped with the custom-designed BIOS, such as those designed for NVIDIA nForce SLI MCPs, can detect the optimized SPD profiles and ensure the memory functions under the best possible conditions. The exclusive OCZ SPD specifications take out the guesswork and provide enthusiasts and gamers with significant overclocked performance with no manual adjustment or compatibility issues. Additionally, all SLI-Ready memory is backed with toll-free technical support, the exclusive EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) coverage, and an industry leading Lifetime Warranty.

Whilst browsing a popular retailers site, I happen upon an advert for OEM Windo$e w/Vista voucher - anywayz, I dig deeper to find out what the voucher is for - free upgrade (which I doubt), or just a discount - either way it never said -- but reading within I find this, which I`ve seen b4 but just skimmed over tbh:


If the individual software license is a desktop operating system (including Windows XP Media Center Edition), we grant you a nonexclusive right to distribute individual software licenses; provided that each one is distributed with either (a) a fully assembled computer system or (b) a nonperipheral computer hardware component.

A “fully assembled computer system” means a computer system consisting of at least a central processing unit, a motherboard, a hard drive, a power supply, and a case.
A “nonperipheral computer hardware component” means a component that will be an integral part of the fully assembled computer system on which the individual software license will be installed.


Now this means with this OEM version of the OS I can:

a] Install it on a pc I`m about to sell, aslong as I built it.

b] Install it on a hard drive I may be installing.

A seperate question, although this may be advertized as a "single license", does that mean a single license for the purchaser ? As in only one person can own it and hense forth aslong as they install it as in a] & b], being the OEM, that`s fine ? As the agreement for distibution issued above - figuring if single license = single user, a distribution agreement doesn`t make any sense.

Furthermore, does the OEM installed OS owner - the person u`ve theoretically built or added to their computer, have a WGA issue there-after ?

(in actuallity, the product I looked at said OEM single-pack, not single license)

What`s u`r opinion ?

Wow that seems very conflicting... It's wierd really I don't know what to think or say. From what I read it would let you install it on as many computers you wanted to as long as you built them? But it's a single user license, so I don't see how that works I suppose?

It`s weird aint it, on the one hand u think of it as "single user license" as in Home Edition & Professional standard purchases - which I can understand, as in EULAs u get with most software stuffz.

And yet as an OEM u have an agreement to distribute. As u are a manufacturer, not a manufact.

To qualify to purchase, or sell, an OEM version of windo$e - I do believe - u have to purchase the minimum HD/mobo/cpu or equiv. part (not necessarily all the parts for a pc, just the main items) - as any1 who`s purchased off Scan (as an example) will tell u - as u go through the checkout procedure, Scan remind u that u qualify to purchase the OEM version when u simple buy a hard drive.

As I understood it - u can-not buy OEM Windo$e on it`s own, or not supposed to. BUT I slightly think even that`s changed.

This *was* aimed at manufacturers, in that until not so long ago, they were only allowed to distribute OEM XP with a component or a new pc. Now it's changed and it can be distributed freely. The license itself belongs to the machine (or more importantly, the motherboard).
