    As mainstream gaming moves towards revolutionary graphic-intensive DX9 and DX10 games, bleeding-edge platforms and large-capacity memory modules are shifting from an enthusiast inclination to a gaming desktop standard. With the release of advanced PC titles like Crysis, powered by Crytek's highly advanced CryENGINE 2, memory that supports demanding multimedia features with high frequencies, aggressive bandwidth, and high densities will be come the norm. Signaling the beginning of a new age in PC gaming, Crysis’ popularity will spark significant demand for high performance computer hardware from not only enthusiasts, but the average, every-day gamer.

    “Like gamers the world over we are excited about the launch of the highly advanced new game Crysis,” commented Alex Mei, Chief Marketing Officer of the OCZ technology Group. “Spectacular new titles like Crysis deliver a fresh level of realism and we are pleased to release new ReaperX DDR2-1000 and DDR3-1333 4GB kits that are optimized to ensure that gamer’s hardware is able to fully leverage the complete slew of features within these games on both current and next generation platforms for the ultimate experience.”

The ReaperX series provides enthusiasts leading-edge cooling technology, with each memory chip in direct contact with a thermo-conductive pipe that guides heat away and quickly dissipates it through the aluminum fin array.

    What ICs are these using, micron D9s?

    BTW, the Reapers cooling technology, I believe it to be superior to that of Corsairs Dominator lineup :)

    i think crysis inspired this when they noticed that hardly anyone could play their game on high settings so OCZ releases something everyone wants, good sales strategy

    I think the Dominator lineup stinks. I've never had to RMA ram before I tried the Dominators....

    reaper hs's are a copy of the thermalright ones, but of course thermalright owns lol. dominators=crap

    note how the price came crashing down to the level of crappy memory recently, why? cause dominators aren't using all d9's anymore. dominators=CRAP now
