OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled the OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC 2x1GB Kit, a revolutionary new memory solution that offers unprecedented speed, signal integrity, and thermal management. These new modules feature the new OCZ FlexXLC heatsink that delivers superior heat dissipation via a hybrid copper and aluminum design alterable between passive air or water cooling. As the World’s fastest DDR2, the PC2-9200, in combination with the innovative FlexXLC technology, is considerably the most ground-breaking and unique memory product existing today.

The latest generation of DDR2 modules by far exceeds the original projections of the DDR2 design triggering a need for amendments in the operating specifications. For example, operating voltage, originally defined as 1.8V, has increased to typically 2.1V or even higher to reach 1GHz+ frequencies. In the case of a DDR2 module running at 1200 MHz and 2.1V supply voltage, this entails that the power consumption increases many times over that of the same module running at 400 MHz and 1.8V supply voltage. Power consumption, in turn, directly translates into heat dissipation.

The extreme increase in power consumption without substantial changes in form factor increases the power and heat density, which requires serious countermeasures to maintain the thermal balance necessary for signal integrity and high performance.

Thanks to OCZ’s FlexXLC (Xtreme Liquid Convention) heat management solution, the OCZ PC2-9200 operates at extreme speeds of 1150MHz without the high temperatures that inhibit or damage the module’s ICs. The FlexXLC module was engineered with a unique “flexible” design which gives 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.

"Water-cooling is more efficient than air cooling, yet standard memory kits are usually not available in off-the-shelf water-cooled configurations," commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology Group. "The new OCZ FlexXLC series—featuring an exciting, novel hybrid water and air cooler based on OCZ’s embedded copper liquid injection system—pushes thermal management of memory modules one step further to keep up with the ever-increasing frequency demands. Moreover, the FlexXLC modules seamlessly co-migrate with any system upgrade to liquid cooling."

Among these thermal management advantages, the PC2-9200 FlexXLC also implements a new 8-layer PCB with thermally conductive power and ground planes to guide heat away from the interconnects with the memory ICs. This facilitates less “crosstalk,” consequently enhancing the module’s total signal integrity. The blend of 8-layer PCB technology and the FlexXLC surface cooler truly offers a state-of-the-art design for the extremist.

The PC2-9200 FlexXLC modules are optimized for the latest cutting edge platforms and will be available in 2GB (2x1024MB) dual channel kits. As part of OCZ’s line-up of premium memory, the PC2-9200 series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support. Harnessing the achievement of leading-edge speed, high performance heat dissipation, and enhanced signal integrity, the unparalleled design of the OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC is a complete, all-encompassing solution certain to set a new benchmark in enthusiast memory.

And once we crank this baby up to 88mph, your gonna see some serious shit.

and to think were only just off from PC10000, when im still using PC3200 icon_sad.gif

......Ram gets that hot? But I guess, if you are running your system on watercooling, you don't really want (m)any fans in your computer making noise.

With DDR2, not really. Sort of like SLI, this is another excuse to get people to pay more for the same thing.

btw, really sweet corrosive things happen when you mix aluminum and copper in a WC setup.

Not sure where you get your info for that. The corrosion of the aluminium or copper (cant remember which one since its 18months since i did redox) is due to oxygen when its in normal water or ions in it. Liquid coolant, or also commonly used radiator fluid contains a chemical which stops the water from dissolving oxygen and other ions which takes away its corrosive properties.

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

My DDR2 ram can barely be passed as hot. So not Really.

RAM will produce heat from the power it uses, however it uses a miniscule amount of power compared to a CPU, GPU and probably not much compared to a chipset so relatively it produces next to no heat.

Then we'll have water cooled monitors and water cooled sounds cards
then water cooled speakers and then water cooled keyboards and mice and then maybe we'll even get water cooled water coolers (just because it sounds cool). lol

If i make a water cooled optical drive does that count?
I've got a lot of free time lately
