OCZ has all sorts of computer hardware that it offers that ends up inside the computers of lots gamers and enthusiasts. OCZ first made a name for itself in the memory market with some high performance memory kits that are offered for just about any platform out there. OCZ was among the first companies to offer RAM to support the Intel Core series with the low 1.65V max when the CPUs first surfaced.




OCZ has now announced that it has a couple new RAM kits that comply with the latest JEDEC DDR3L low-voltage standards designed to make the RAM run cooler and more efficiently during high demands. Less heat may also mean that the RAM kits are more overclockable than standard offerings.


The new kits are offered in a Platinum ELV solution that runs at 1.35V and is compatible with Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 CPUs. The Platinum ELV kits will be offered in 6GB and 4GB flavors. OCZ is also offering the Reaper HPC and Gold ULV memory kits in 12GB or 8GB configurations. Those kits operate at 1.5V, which is still well below the normal 1.65V of standard RAM kits.
