OCZ adds water cooling support to DDR-800 RAM
Almost two months ago, OCZ launched
a 2GB memory kit with a novel heatsink design that enabled support for both water-cooling systems and standard air cooling. Called PC2-9200 FlexXLC, the kit runs at 1.15GHz with timings of 5-5-5-18, but it'll set users back almost $500
on Newegg. For those who feel the inexplicable urge to water-cool their memory but don't want to blow $500 for the privilege, OCZ has now announced
a more affordable version of the same memory.
The PC2-6400 FlexXLC kit packs 2GB of DDR2-800 memory instead of the speedier DDR2-1150. It has recommended timings of 4-4-4-15 at 2.0V and the very same heatsink as its older sibling. Considering the low timings and relatively low voltage, this new kit might very well have some decent overclocking headroom, too. OCZ doesn't say how much it'll cost, but the company says the new kit is "more affordable" so its customers don't feel "left out."
