    OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, is pleased to announce the release of the Special Ops Edition DDR and DDR2 lines. Parts will be offered in PC-3200, PC2-5400, and PC2-6400 speed grades. This new line of OCZ memory features a unique camouflage motif XTC heatspreader and a price tag that has an edge over competitors.

    The Special Ops Edition line will be available in 1GB modules and 2GB (2x1024MB) dual channel kits for the ultimate memory upgrade for the latest graphic-intensive PC games, such as Battlefield 2, Half Life 2, Doom 3, and Quake 4, which deliver the best end-user experience with 2GB+ of memory.

    “Gamers are a unique breed, and place distinctive demands on their PC memory,” commented Alex Mei, OCZ Technology Inc. “Serious gamers put heavy bandwidth requirements on their memory, and put a premium on both superior performance and dependability. The new OCZ Special Ops Edition memory dual channel kits feature the ultimate balance of speed, reliability, and high capacity, making them an ideal solution for gamers.”

    OCZ Special Ops memory will be available as a premium selection for Monarch Computer Hornet Pro small form factor system for gamers tired of lugging their bulky PC towers to LAN events.

    “The Special Ops Edition memory is the ideal memory not only for gamers building their own rigs,” added Alex Mei, OCZ Technology Inc. “It is also designed to be a premium solution for system builders interested in providing the ultimate configured gaming boxes. We are proud to announce the Monarch Computer Hornet Pro as the first small factor solution to make use of this cutting edge memory. Together with the new Monarch Computer “Camo Wrap” Hornet Pro this is truly a SFF PC match made in LAN party heaven.”

    All Special Ops Edition modules are 100% hand-tested for quality assurance and compatibility and feature high quality XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation. Furthermore, each OCZ SOE module is backed by the industry leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind during intense fragging sessions.

    That is the ugliest stick of RAM I have ever seen. I hope this is a joke. If not bad move on OCZ's part, looks like I'll go Muskin then with my conroe.

    I'd stick with my pair of Platinum XTC anyday. That thing doesn't shine, and it looks like it rolled around in shit. :laugh:

    Shiny is better than dirty. :)

    Lol. I think it looks pretty cool. Only looks cool by itself though, it would look nasty paired with everything else in a regular modder's case.

    My friends, even if it performs the part, it doesn't look the part. Sort of like in real life. Which would you choose? The hot chick, or the ugly duckling? :)

    Also when you're an overclocker, isn't the common trend to do it with style?

    How cool would it be to drive fast in a brand new Porsche, next to driving fast in a falling apart butt ugly suped up Honda Civic? Sure they both can do the same job, but appearance is very important! It commands respect and inspires awe.

    Usually modding and overclocking go hand in hand. ;)

    I wonder how many people will end up losing these things :p

    They need to quit messing around and release the damn phase change kit I've been hearing about.

    That's the only thing I look forward to from OCZ.

    C'mon guys... it's camo, think of how much harder you'll be to see in games. It'll give you a awesome edge. ;)

    "Like OMG, OZC sucks now because they have one stick of RAM that is in camo, I won't buy from them again..."

    You people make it sound like this is the only RAM OCZ will be selling. It is a niche product, marketed to a niche market. If you don't like it don't buy it, simple. There are actually people out there willing to buy this and excited about it, I (saddly) know one and when I showed this to him he was very happy about it and plans to buy one the instant he sees a halfway decent deal on it.
