CellShock PC2-9200 (DDR2-1150) 2GB Kit

Packaging & Appearance

Packaging

Unlike the original CellShock PC2-6400 kit, the PC2-9200 is packaged inside a black cardboard box with a window. This is a welcome change to the boring and over-used plastic blister pack packaging used on almost all other memory and certainly adds a level of 'class' to the modules.

Each of the DIMM's are individually seated inside a plastic case that has been moulded to the exact contours of the modules. This offers premium protection against courier inflicted damage and shows CellShock's dedication to ensuring that the modules reach you in tip-top condition. Also included in the pack is a Cellshock manual and case badge.


Appearance

Being a fan of the colour red, one of the first things I said when taking these modules out of their packaging was "wow!". CellShock have used the very same high quality aluminium heatspreaders found on their previous PC2-6400 kit but this time have annodised the aluminium red. Due to the slightly coarse surface of the modules, the finish sparkles in the light giving them an almost metallic appearance.

Even more impressive than the high quality red heatspreaders is the fact that CellShock have opted to use thermal paste on the memory IC's. This offers much better heat transfer properties than the thermal pads used by almost all other manufacturers and credit has to be given to CellShock for going the extra mile.

Maybe I'm asking too much here, but if CellShock really wanted to complete the look, it would have been awesome to have the memory modules constructed on a red PCB. However, once the modules are installed on a motherboard the PCB is hidden so it probably would have been more trouble than it's worth!

Mr. Smith
Those sticks did well there Jimbo, nice review too.

Personally, I'd buy 4gb of the cellshock 6400 stuff over this.You get 4gb of 6400 for almost the same price of 2gb of this 9200 ram. The 6400 sticks OC to near 9200 speeds...

Still nice sticks mind
