OCZ Blade PC3-16000 CAS 7 6GB Memory Kit - The Package and Modules

We look at a low latency set of PC3-16000 modules from OCZ today and find out if they're able to impress as a top end choice for your i7 rig.

The Package

 

Having a look at the package, we can see that OCZ has opted for a design that lets us see what the modules look like thanks to a couple of windows in the middle of the design. While we can see only two modules, we can see across the bottom that this is a triple channel kit.

Across the top we have the brand, while below that we have the model; in this case it's the Blade series. Below that we can see mention that this DDR3 kit is of course high performance and while there's no real detail of the speeds, we can see the sticker on the module gives us all the information we need. We'll be looking closer at that in just a moment.

Turning over, we've got a bit of a run down on what triple channel memory is along with what the Blade performance series offers. We've also got a bit of information on OCZ, their customer support along with pictures of some of the awards the company has won.

 

The Modules

 

Having a look at the modules now, we can see that one side is very plain with no stickers or logos being seen. We can see a couple of screws which holds the heatsink together, unlike a lot of other companies that simply use thermal tape to hold the two pieces of heatsink together. The design OCZ has opted for gives us a much higher quality feeling which is nice when you're spending a fair bit of money.

On the other side we can see in the middle we have the OCZ Technology logo while to the left we have a sticker that gives us a run down on the main specifications of the modules. We can see that we've got a few fins on the top of the module to help move the heat away, but nothing too out there.

As we've previously mentioned, the left side of the modules have a sticker that gives us the main specifications on the modules. In this case we can see it's a PC3-16000 module which translates to 2000MHz. We're also able to see that the modules timings are 7-8-7 @ 1.65V. A few other details are that the module is part of the Blade series and is 2GB, making it part of a 6GB kit. We can also see the part number which again lets us know that it's a 2000MHz 6GB kit.
