Corsair were not the only company to announce new super l33t fast RAM specifically for the Nvidia nForce 790 platform today - OCZ also got in on the action!
OCZ's PC3-16000 NVIDA SLI-Ready Edition memory also includes EPP 2.0 for optimal performance and carries rated timings of 9-9-9-28 when clocked at 2000MHz DDR at 1.9 volts. It also comes in a 2GB dual channel pack and will probably cost you one leg and half an arm.
We did a quick check online for pricing but could not see anything as yet but it will be interesting to see which is cheaper - OCZ or Corsair. We will endeavor to get both kits in for testing on a 790i motherboard and see which one does best.
