OCZ FlexXLC Edition PC2-9200 (1150mhz) 2GB DDR2 Kit
Published: 4th July 2007 | Source: OCZ | Price: |Conclusion
First and foremost the OCZ FlexXLC PC2-9200 kit overclocks like stink! That's stink in a good way too, with the modules hitting a rather dizzy 660mhz (DDR2-1320) - the highest speed out of any DDR2 kit we've ever tested. Unfortunately we were unable to test the modules under water cooling to see if this further improved performance, but let's face it - if you're not happy with DDR2-1320 then there's something seriously wrong with you!
This awesome performance is also teamed with amazing looks. Gone are the cheap and tacky aluminium heatspreaders in favor of extremely effective hybrid passive and/or water cooled heatspreaders. Constructed from a mixture of copper and aluminium and finished off with a chrome plated reflective surface, OCZ have certainly spared no expense.
To top things off, the FlexXLC modules have recently taken quite a price hit, and can be found on many sites for an almost "five fingered discount" price of £160. This is only a few quid more than many of the other PC2-9000+ kits available from other manufacturers - and as the results and pictures have shown, the FlexXLC modules are worth every penny.
• Overclocks to DDR2-1320! The highest of any kit tested at OC3D.
• Memory timings can be tightened down to 3-3-3-6 at DDR2-800
• Hybrid heatspreaders can be used with or without water cooling.
• Unique and sexy looks.
• Packaging doesn't adequately protect the modules (or make them feel special).
