Riiighht.... and thats going to sell because....
people like camouflage
maybe tempting to the more military obsessed community... I belong to this minority.
good thing is my comp case has served in the Gulf and Northern Ireland... so that DPM would be a nice addon to the old soldier!
just don't forget where you put your memory because you'll never find it again.
aaand look ma, pissant timings across the board.
2.5-3-3 is really considerably high for DDR 400, when you can get 2-3-2-5 stuff with ease. Similarly... with 3-4-3(IIRC) DDR2-800 hitting market soon, OCZ's just looks silly
I'd buy that for a dollar!
wheres the memory.... i can see it.
what a joke
Is it me, or is this whole heat spreader craze just a load of marketing fluff? I mean, how hot does RAM get, and how is a heat spreader going to improve its performance? Seems far-fetched if you ask me. I might not swim in the über-overclocker pond, but I've never heard a story of anyone who managed to MELT his RAM. Overvolt it to death yes, but burn it out from excessively intensive SuperPI calculations? I think not.
And cammo RAM looks sad. Like paining speed flames on a 15-year-old Datsun. There you have it.
How much extra they're charging again ?
Probably enough of one to put you in striking distance of getting a 2GB Mushkin/Super Talent kit.
As to heatspreaders, their purpose is to literally spread heat. It's way easier to cool modules this way, as one fan cools the whole stick. With bare chips, airflow that doesn't find a home can be a PITA
Yep try running some Winbond UTT or something at 3.2v and then tell me RAM doesn't get hot
My RAM has to have a fan on it to keep it running sweet
Actually, they help.
Ever remember Mushkins old Redline series (not an oc'r, so probly not) They required heatspreaders and active cooling becuase they could take volts like no other.
There's no way I could possibly get my Crucial Ballistix Tracers to what they are now, 250mhz DDR500 2.5-2-2-5 @ 2.8v.
They have a purpose, and they look cool!
Uhh that looks sexay, but you wont see sh** once the ram is installed...
I would not buy that just 'cause it has some neat paint
Actually when I first saw the title I thought OCZ had started shipping without heat spreaders!
hmm, for 2.5-3-3-7 timings they better drop the price good, as i can get their very own platinum EL 2-3-2-5 for probably less then this is gonna cost due to the marketting cammo gimmick
id say if they properly adjust the price according to the timings, i might get some of this, not for the cammo, but for OK timings for a decent price
This will sell well in the South. Down there you're getting dressed up when you put on clean camoflauge to go to a restraunt
In one of my systems, I have soem Ballistix ram set to 2-2-2-5. Even when the system is idle, the chips are uncomfortably hot to the touch.
Its DDR2, find me a kit of DDR2 with those timings.
No those were the timings for DDR400. The DDR2 was 4,4,4,12 and 5,5,5,12
