OCZ water cools fast memory

PC9200 at 1150MHz or faster

OCZ just announced some super-dooper memory branded as OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC 2x1GB Kit. The new memory can work at 1150MHz and even higher if water-cooled.

The new memory features OCZ FlexXLC that can cool the memory better and will dissipate the heat more efficiently, via a hybrid copper and aluminium design. The new memory can be cooled passively by air or by water. If you use water, the company makes a liquid injection system that should keep your memory cool even at high frequencies.

When water cooled, 9200 memory can reach even higher frequencies than 1150MHz, we are not sure if it can get to a magical 1200MHz at 2.1 V. You have to get rid of the heat that you get when you overclock the memory designed to work at 800MHz at 1.8V to 1200MHz at 2.1V as the heat dissipation increases drastically when you hit such high frequencies.

This is how this crazy memory looks.


The new PC2-9200 FlexXLC also implements a new eight-layer PCB thermally conductive power and ground planes to guide heat away from the interconnects with the memory integrated circuits.

OCZ offers the life-time warranty for this memory, it is sampling the modules to selected press and it should be available before the Yule. We know we will be scared of the price but if you want the fastest memory you have to expect $500+ as the final price for 2 x 1GB. µ
