CPU-Z was used to check the SPD of the modules. The Part Number reported matches that of the sticker on the heatspreaders which indicates an 1150 MHz rating. OCZ has programmed the memory to 800 MHz at CL5 and 1.8V so that they will boot in any system right away. The advertised settings can then be applied once you enter the BIOS of the system.

Performance

The performance of the kit was tested with separate tests in order to give a well rounded idea of the real world performance buyers can expect. The tests were performed at a range of clock frequencies at each CL: 3, 4 and 5. To test the overclock ability of the kit at each CL, voltages from 1.8V all the way up to 2.4V were employed in order to indicate the required voltage a user can expect to achieve such frequencies.

The results are summarized in the following table and graphs.

While the Flex II kit appears to scale linearly with supplied voltage up to its rated 2.1V, any higher voltage does not seem to help in increasing the maximum overclock of the kit significantly. I should finally note that, while these results are a good indication of expected performance, no two kits will perform identically and that these results are not guaranteed.
