OCZ Gold XTC PC2-8800 DDR2 2gb Kit



The OCZ Gold PC2-8800 XTC modules have proven to be very capable indeed. Managing speeds of up to DDR2-1160 on stock timings is certainly a great achievement for memory aimed more at the mid-range market. Most of us are unlikely to ever need this kind of bandwidth, and for these people it's always good to know that the modules are able to run at tight timings of 4-4-4-10 and still keep up the pace at DDR2-950.

Not only do the modules perform great, but they have got the looks to match. The XTC heatspreaders not only give the modules an extreme look, but also assist in the cooling of the IC's especially when airflow is directed their way.

A quick search of Froogle shows limited availability of these modules at present with prices around the £300 mark. This is very good value considering lower-end 2gb kits from other manufacturers are currently retailing for £350+.

+ Great looking & effective heatspreaders.
+ Competitive pricing.
+ Backed by OCZ's lifetime warranty.
+ Reasonable overclocking potential for mid-range modules.

- Didn't quite manage 5-4-4-10 timings at DDR2-1100.
