Overclocking the Dual Channel memory proved to be a legendary task - When in Dual channel operations, your memory has to work in perfect tandem for maximum overclocking. If one module is less than the other, it causes the entire system to come crashing down around you. OCZ managed to squeeze an amazing 489MHz out of their memory in Dual Channel mode. In single channel mode, over 502MHz was the final reach of the memory.




OCZ are the second company to produce specialised memory for the Dual Channel segment. With Corsair being the only other company producing specialised memory for the Dual Channel segment, OCZ has moved into a very lucrative memory supply segment.


Stability terms, OCZ memory in Dual Channel mode supplied extreme stability at standard speeds and overclocking, OCZ is the perfect accompaniment. In single channel mode, this memory runs even faster than the OCZ Performance Series 433MHz memory, and with only being rated for 400MHz operations, it's well above the curve.


On the whole, OCZ has proven to have a great product for Dual Channel and a great product for single channel.
