OCZ Technology Announces the Latest XTC Rev. 2 Memory Cooler

OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory and computer components, today unveiled the latest memory cooling accessory, the OCZ XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) Cooler Revision 2 to promote dedicated airflow to modules. Active cooling combined with passive thermal solutions is extremely important in any rigorous overclocking environment, and OCZ developed the next generation XTC Cooler for supreme heat management of OCZ’s complete lineup of high-speed RAM.

“The first revision of the OCZ XTC Memory Cooler proved to be a very popular product with a wide range of enthusiast and power users,” said Ryan Edwards, Director of Product Management for OCZ. “We are excited to now offer a follow-up design with improved performance, an enhanced feature set, and a sleek new look, all at the same affordable price point as the original. The XTC Cooler Rev. 2 is fully compatible with the complete range of OCZ high-performance memory products.”

Once installed over the memory subsystem, the XTC Cooler’s dual 60mm fans channel a steady flow of air creating a cooler environment and promoting stability. Though optimized for use with OCZ’s specialized XTC heatspreaders, the Rev. 2 is a beneficial cooling aid for all system memory, including those with larger, taller heatsinks. Thanks to superior active cooling, dual fan speeds, and easy installation, this second edition cooler is the ultimate overclocking companion for enthusiasts seeking superior performance, longevity, and reliability from their memory.

With a sleek, new design including a taller profile for the latest heatspreaders, the XTC Cooler Rev. 2 features a brushed aluminum design, dual fans with blue LEDs, ultra quiet operation, and a two year warranty backed by OCZ’s leading technical support and service. If you’re a hardcore overclocker looking to maximize the airflow in your system or a case modder looking to add extra excitement and style, the OCZ XTC Cooler Rev. 2 is the ideal choice to pair with performance RAM.Source: OCZ

The RAM used for this pictures happens to be OCZ Blade's, their heatspreaders are about as tall as the ones used on Mushkin RAM and in the original OCZ XTC they only just fit.

However, this newer version seems to have a lot more clearance (almost twice as tall as the original) and I wouldnt be at all shocked if a set of Dominators or similar tall sticks of RAM would fit...that's useful as my FlexII's could use some active cooling and the original OCZ unit didn't fit over them. :)

lol.... well its for ppl with wayyyyy higher MHZ than 800 and V highter than 1.8 reaching for low times like yours :) But im sure ppl will keep it in mind who are in the market for ram NFN-RAM (Non fan needin) :P. They are just extra performace parts for ppl pushing there systems. You dont ever NEED somthing like this as much as u WANT it for pushing your ram to where u WANT it.

When I clocked my Mushkins up way past 1200mhz I'm happy I had my OCZ XTC cooling them. :nutkick:


800mhz @ 1.8v doesnt need active cooling.
