A Closer Look

In this day and age it's great to see manufacturers like OCZ optimising their RAM for particular chipsets, and the OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 CL 3 FlexXLC Edition sticks are no different. This 2Gb kit is in fact optimised for NVIDIA® nForce® SLI™ platforms. The way that OCZ achieved this was through their new EPP-Ready (Enhanced Performance Profiles) memory modules. Essentially, the module actually has two programmed speeds; one when run on an NVIDIA® nForce® SLI™ based motherboard (nforce 680i) and another for other boards based on competing chipsets.

This latest edition to the highly-awarded OCZ Flex XLC product family is engineered to produce significant performance gains on the latest NVIDIA® nForce® SLI™ platforms by implementing Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) and allowing the memory to operate at a stable 800MHz at CL3 upon start up. The PC2-6400 CL 3 Flex modules are integrated with an EPP programmed SPD to immediately boot at the correct settings to produce 3-4-4 timings on nForce 680i motherboards.

Like their faster siblings, the OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 CL 3 FlexXLC Edition modules feature E.V.P (Extended Voltage Protection) allowing you to run the RAM at 2.35v without voiding your warranty.

The OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 CL 3 FlexXLC Edition modules utilise OCZ's patented XLC (Xtreme Liquid Convention) heatspreader. The XLC heatsink according to OCZ delivers superior heat dissipation via a hybrid copper and aluminm design alterable between passive air or water cooling. It's nice to see OCZ incorporating the benefits of running water-cooling into their high-end RAM modules.

I'm sure that you'll all agree that the XLC heatsinks look extremely eye-catching and would look fitting in any high-end rig. I must also say that the weight of these modules is nothing short of 'hefty' to say the least, and they ooze quality. I have included an image below as a comparison to the OCZ OCZ PC2-6400 Titanium 2Gb DC Kit review that I did a few months ago, just so you can see the size difference between the two.

OCZ FLexXLC and Titanium comparison

I was unable to remove the heatsink from the OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 CL 3 FlexXLC Edition modules to give you a glimpse of the IC's on the PCB beneath, but I did try.

Now that we've gotten closer acquainted with our review subject, let's see how well they perform.

We take a look at the baby of the FlexXLC family from OCZ and put it through its paces.
