Finally in our ultimate test, we see that the Geil is able to get higher raw clock speeds than the OCZ memory. So, if you want that extra MHz Geil is for you, if you want a cheaper version of Geil, then OCZ if perfect for you.
With very few manufacturers producing modules over 400Mhz, it is great to see that OCZ is able to produce a high quality module at a fairly reasonable price. Hand picking modules does tend to drive the cost of the modules up for the consumer, but OCZ have done a pretty good job of keeping these costs lower than Corsair or Geil.
In stability terms, we had a few issues with the module running on a SiS 648 motherboard with 1T command enabled, but when running with VIA or Intel based boards, this memory was more than stable, so SiS users either wait for a new BIOS for your boards, or run 2T command rate (EPoX and Gigabyte users we are referring to).
On the whole, OCZ have put out a reasonably competitive module for you to consider when going for the highest of the high memory modules for your super overclocker systems.
- Heatspreader Integrated
- Cheaper than Corsair and Geil
- Availability in Australia extremely limited
- Still expensive for ram
