OCZ introduces water-cooled memory
Three months ago, Corsair announced its first batch of Dominator
memory modules with their innovative vertical heatsink design. OCZ has now decided to strike back
with modules that don a similar heatsink with a surprising twist: support for water cooling systems. Indeed, the new PC2-9200 FlexXLC
modules have two pipes sticking out on either side of the vertical heatsink for liquid intake and exhaust. Of course, all but the most hardcore enthusiasts are even going to consider water-cooling their memory, so the new sticks' hybrid aluminum and copper heatsinks are also designed to dissipate heat conventionally through case airflow.
Crazy cooling systems aside, the new OCZ modules are launching in 2GB dual-channel kits only, and they're rated for operation at 1,150MHz with 5-5-5-18 timings at 2.35V. For reference, Corsair's Dominator 8888C4DF modules are rated for operation at 1,111MHz with 4-4-4-12 timings and voltage of 2.4V.
