The RAM used for this pictures happens to be OCZ Blade's, their heatspreaders are about as tall as the ones used on Mushkin RAM and in the original OCZ XTC they only just fit.

However, this newer version seems to have a lot more clearance (almost twice as tall as the original) and I wouldnt be at all shocked if a set of Dominators or similar tall sticks of RAM would fit...that's useful as my FlexII's could use some active cooling and the original OCZ unit didn't fit over them. :)

lol.... well its for ppl with wayyyyy higher MHZ than 800 and V highter than 1.8 reaching for low times like yours :) But im sure ppl will keep it in mind who are in the market for ram NFN-RAM (Non fan needin) :p. They are just extra performace parts for ppl pushing there systems. You dont ever NEED somthing like this as much as u WANT it for pushing your ram to where u WANT it.

i just bought a rev 1 for $15 new, i guess i know why they dropped the price now.
OCZ: "mission acomplished" *rides away in a helicopter* "wait till they see rev 3, and 4"

When I clocked my Mushkins up way past 1200mhz I'm happy I had my OCZ XTC cooling them. :nutkick:


800mhz @ 1.8v doesnt need active cooling.
