OCZ Unveils New PC2-6400 Flex XLC CAS 3 Memory Modules

OCZ Technology Group, today announced the PC2-6400 Flex XLC CL3 series. This latest edition to the highly-awarded OCZ Flex XLC product family is engineered to produce significant performance gains on the latest NVIDIA nForce SLI platforms by implementing Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) and allowing the memory to operate at a stable 800MHz at CL3 upon start up. Developed and tested on the 680i platform, the Flex XLC CL3 series provides rock-solid stability and compatibility for enthusiasts looking to reap the benefits of aggressively priced, low latency memory.

Demonstrating great potential for tweaking and overclocking memory, the NVIDIA 680i chipset allows enthusiasts to squeeze the most performance out of their memory. With that in mind, the latest PC2-6400 Flex modules were integrated with an EPP programmed SPD to immediately boot at the correct settings to produce 3-4-4 timings on 680i motherboards. This feature provides a true “Plug and Play” overclocking feature that eliminates the need for manual configuration and makes memory optimizations a household item for the complete range of consumers looking to maximize system performance through overclocking.

The new DDR2-800 CL3 modules feature OCZ’s original Flex XLC (Xtreme Liquid Convention) heatsink which delivers superior heat dissipation via a hybrid copper and aluminum design alterable between passive air or water cooling. The Flex XLC module was engineered with this unique “flexible” design to give enthusiasts the option to run the modules passively or water cooled via the integrated liquid injection system. The concurrent use of both technologies (water-cooling) promotes maximum heat dissipation. Thanks to OCZ’s Flex XLC heat management solution, the OCZ PC2-6400 CL3 operates with an optimal balance of high speeds and low latency without the high temperatures that inhibit or damage the module’s ICs.

“We are pleased to be the first on the market offering a reasonably priced CL3 800Mhz solution with EPP Support,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “The new OCZ PC2-6400 Flex XLC CL 3 Kits are the fastest system memory available when it comes to effective bandwidth in non-streaming applications. OCZ CL 3 Flex modules deliver superior performance in games with out the need for massive overclocking.”

The PC2-6400 Flex XLC CAS 3 modules will be available in 2GB (2x1024MB) dual channel kits. As part of OCZ’s line-up of premium memory, the PC2-6400 CL3 series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support. Harnessing the performance of high speeds, low latency, and leading-edge heat dissipation, the unparalleled design of the OCZ PC2-6400 Flex XLC CL3 is a complete, all-encompassing solution for enthusiasts.

Takes 2.1V to hit cas4, takes 2.4v to hit cas3. Call me crazy, but I think that the cas4 kit would probably hit cas3 with 2.4v as well.

i agree its prolly the same mem chips to :wink: though the cas3 is warrentied up to 2.4v

How much are these going for?

I mean, Im not a huge fan of watercooling memory :shudder: but the performance seems out of sight. Id like to see some benchies on these bad boys.
