OCZ ReaperX PC2-6400 4Gb DDR2 Kit
When the OCZ R&D team set about designing the ReaperX kit, they must have had one clear objective in mind: to put a nail in the coffin of all the other competition. Not only does the ReaperX kit look the absolute business with it's large heatpipes and array of aluminium fins, but the overclocking performance even puts a lot of DDR2 2GB kits to shame. Managing to hit just under DDR2-1100 on our DFI P35-T2R motherboard, the ReaperX is by far one of the most capable 4GB kits we've seen to date (both on and off OC3D), and left our Mushkin HP2-6400 4GB kit for dead.
Sure it may have been a bit of a pain to get up and running at the advertised 4-4-3-12 timings on an Intel chipset based board, but this minor setback has only given OCZ the chance to show to the community that it is committed to after-sales support by producing a range of "how-to" guides for various motherboard over on their forums
With prices starting at around £80 on various websites, the ReaperX PC2-6400 kit is an absolute steal. If you're looking for a 4GB DDR2 kit to compliment your memory hungry rig, look no further - the ReaperX is anything but grim!
• Greatly improved cooling over the original Reaper series.
• Sexy looking heatspreaders.
• Overclocks to almost DDR2-1100 on only 2.1v
• Usual OCZ warranty and great after-sales service.
• Was initially a bit of a pain to get running at 4-4-3-12 timings (see link above)
• Nothing, zip, nadda.
Thanks to OCZ
