OCZ Unveils PC2-9200 Reaper HPC Series with Passive Heatpipe Cooling System

OCZ Technology Group, Inc., today announced a high-speed version of the new OCZ Reaper HPC memory line, a PC2-9200(CL 5-5-5-18 at 2.3V) rated kit, making it the world’s fastest memory that takes advantages of the heatpipe design to effectively offload heat and increase performance and stability. This unique Reaper HPC (Heat Pipe Conduit) heatspreader is engineered to deliver superior silent heat dissipation over traditional heatspreaders.

As part of one of OCZ’s high performance memory designs, PC2-9200 Reaper HPC modules are designed to achieve exceptionally high frequencies while maintaining aggressive timings and system stability. The new Reaper DDR2-1150 is the premier, cutting-edge solution for enthusiasts building a performance machine.

“With ultra-high speed memory comes the need for extreme cooling solutions that can be extremely costly or else rely on smart features borrowed from other cooling areas,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “The Reaper HPC series is the first implementation of heat-pipe technology on memory modules using phase change technology for smart management of the thermal dissipation of one of the world's fastest memory modules, namely the PC2-9200 Reaper.”

The Reaper HPC is an innovative cooling solution developed by OCZ to effectively minimize heat produced by high-speed memory. As heat rises into the thermo-conductive copper heat pipe conduit, it is dissipated through the strategically-placed compact aluminum fin array. By guiding performance-robbing heat away from key memory components, the unique Reaper HPC design helps facilitate improved overclocking performance, while improving longevity and stability of the modules.

The PC2-9200 Reaper HPC modules are optimized for the latest cutting edge motherboards and will be available in 2GB (2x1024MB) dual channel kits. Like all OCZ premium memory, the PC2-9200 Reaper series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.

That is some awesome looking memory. Id like to see a price on this 2GB kit. I bet its in the 400 dollar range. Well worth it for some kick axe memory.

Gimmick. Just make a heatspreader larger.... to cover the same area as the pictured cooler+heatpipe. Would be just as effective and cheaper and less "gizmo-foolish". 4/10.

Memory speed/timings look interesting though... But others do similar without the gizmo.
