• CL 5-6-6-15 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
• Gold Layered XTC Heatspreader
• Lifetime Warranty 2.2-2.4 Volts
• 240 Pin DIMM
"OCZ EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) is a feature that allows performance enthusiasts to use a VDIMM of 2.4V ± 5% without invalidating their OCZ Lifetime Warranty."
To summarise the specifications above, the OCZ Gold PC2-8800 XTC is able to run at speeds of DDR2-1100 whilst maintaining timings of 5-6-6-15. Of course, this is OCZ we are talking about here, so with a little tweaking and a bit of extra voltage we should be able to see speeds in excess of this - especially on our new Conroe based test bed.
One thing to note about these modules is their need for a motherboard capable of providing its DDR slots with a minimum of 2.2v. Without this voltage, the OCZ Gold sticks may not work to their full potential. Luckily our Asus P5B board goes a fair bit higher, so we should see some nice overclocking results.
