OCZ PC2-6400 Titanium 2Gb DC Kit
Published: 12th March 2007 | Source: OCZ Technology | Price: |Conclusion
The OCZ PC2-6400 Titanium EPP DC 2Gb kit is a worthy addition for either the gamer or overclocker on a budget. Straight out of the box and ramping up the FSB on an Intel based motherboard produced better than average results, especially considering that this RAM is actually rated at 800Mhz. Sure the Titanium's chips aren't highly sought after Micron D9, but the ProMOS variant certainly give a very respectable account for themselves.
Unfortunately, due to not owning an nForce 590 based motherboard, I was unable to compare results. But I'd wager that the Titanium would perform just as admirably...especially with the additional benefit of being able to run CAS 4-4-4-15 1T latency with Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP). The 1T command rate should give the EPP modules a boost over standard memory's 2T command rate.
Further, kudos to OCZ for providing the ability to run this ram up to 2.3v without voiding the warranty.
Summing up the overall performance of the OCZ PC2-6400 Titanium EPP XTC 2Gb kit is an absolute no-brainer. The modules are extremely sexy, they perform well out of the box and stay remarkably cool (thanks to their XTC heatspreaders); and they are extremely well priced.
Priced at around £128.66 at time of review from Komplett these modules are definitely recommended for someone who's looking for performance on a budget.
+ Can run tight timings of 4-4-4-15 1T (nForce 590i motherboard reliant)
+ Very respectable overclock from DDR2-800 to DDR2-1100
+ Priced to sell
+ Lifetime warranty and EVP up to 2.3v.
- Initially a little fickle with my P5B Deluxe
