OCZ Gold XTC PC2-8800 DDR2 2gb Kit



I have to admit that when OCZ first announced a change to their heatspreader design I wasn't a great fan of the meshed looks. However, seeing modules that sport OCZ's new XTC design in the flesh, I think my opinion is about to change...

For those of us with a keen eye, you will have noticed that the mesh is actually platinum in colour with only the surround and the "Z" logo being finished in gold. The XTC design puts these modules in a league of their own - no other memory I have ever seen or reviewed comes close to OCZ's extreme styling.

As for cooling abilities, the meshed design of the XTC heatspreaders provide the memory IC's with increased ventilation thus cooling the memory modules more efficiently than traditional heatspreader designs.

The OCZ Gold PC2-8800 modules are double sided and make use of D9GMH IC's. Searching around the Internet didn't turn up many results for these chips, so I guess we'll just have to see how they perform 1st hand!
