OCZ makes building your SLI system easier with their SLI-ready memory kits. These PC2 8500 modules come with their SPDs pre-programmed for optimal performance. So all you have to do is plug the modules in and go since your BIOS will automatically set itself. Their NVIDIA-defined EPPs are designed to optimize their performance in an SLI system!

The platinum-mirrored XTC heat spreaders provide excellent thermal convection even in normally dead-air spots for maximum thermal dissipation. Because of this they come with an exclusive Extended Voltage Protection warranty that covers the modules up to 2.35V.

With the fusion of proprietary technologies found in these sticks and the cutting-edge architecture, the PC2-8500 Platinum edition is a major breakthrough for SLI performance!

  • newegg OCZ PC2-8500 SLI-Ready Series DDR2 SDRAM The new OCZ PC2-8500 SLI-Ready Series is equipped with NVIDIA Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) to optimize the modules' performance on nForce SLI-based motherboards. OCZ exclusively-engineered, select high-performance modules with advanced SPD (Serial Presence Detect) settings allow compatible motherboards to recognize and utilize the added information, ultimately increasing the performance potential of the entire platform.
  • newegg XTC Heatspreaders XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders with an innovative honeycomb design significantly increase ventilation and heat dissipation through more direct contact to memory ICs.
  • newegg 2.35V EVP The OCZ EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) feature allows performance enthusiasts to use a VDIMM of 2.35V without invalidating their OCZ Lifetime Warranty.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent memory recognized by the BIOS without a hitch as 1066MHz on first boot

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I purchase a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R Mobo, EVGA GeForce GTS250 512 MB, Intel Core 2 Duo E7400, and 2 sticks of the OCZ. I booted straight to the BIOS to make sure the RAM was recognized as 1066MHz with the correct 5-5-5-15 timings and once all the multipliers were set correctly, sure enough the RAM was recognized correctly; I was nervous about purchasing after reading an awful lot of people saying the RAM was not recognized as 1066MHz for them. Maybe it is just the motherboard/RAM combination. Gigabyte listed this RAM as compatible, and sure enough it was.

1 out of 5 eggswaste of money

Pros: The computer will boot up.

Cons: With memory set to auto, this reads as DDR2 667. After timing and memory clock was set manually, voltage set up to 2.1v, the computer will not boot. Same motherboard reads DDR2 800, and DDR2 667 properly on auto.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this to go with a Gigabyte board, a Phenom X4 cpu, and ATI Radeon HD4850 video card. The computer performed better with no name DDR2 800 installed. I don't think I'll ever bother with OCZ again.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you are having issues. Some of the Gigabyte boards struggle with 1066mhz speeds. Please visit our support forums at the link below for suggested BIOS settings.
Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsCan't achieve rated speeds

Pros: looks good. Sli memory

Cons: this is not DDR2 1066 memory but only 667 unless you overclock, then the rated speeds are still hard to obtain (i still haven't been able to) their suport forum does not help much.

Other Thoughts: I have got it stable at 800mhz and will leave it their but 800mhz memory would have been cheaper.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, in some cases we will program the SPD on kits at a lower speed for compatibility purposes only. Not all boards have a properly programmed BIOS and many cannot boot at higher speeds, but will run rated speeds when set up to do so in the BIOS. We are sorry that making the required settings proved difficult for you.
Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGood RAM

Cons: I only bought 2G.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM!

Pros: Another great OCZ product. Running stable @ 1066mhz 5-5-5-15 2.1v as advertised.

Cons: None really. Runs hot but that was expected.

Other Thoughts: Booted up @ 667mhz. Had to manually set the speed at timings in the BIOS. No biggie. A memory cooler would be a wise investment.

5 out of 5 eggsOUTSTANDING!!

Pros: Solid, Reliable, Good Quality, Good company

Cons: 1 out of 5 would not run at correct speeds and latencies but rma'd them and all set.

Other Thoughts: This is my 5th pair and they are great. I've used a few of the others i bought for friend's machines. I've a owned quite a few memory brands (Corsair, Adata, Mushkin, PNY, Patriot, and OCZ) and OCZ is becoming one of my favorites. When running at 800mhz the latencies ran at 4-4-4-12. Sweet

4 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM, weak heatspreaders

Pros: Fast, easy install, no problems. Can tell a difference between this and the DDR2-800 I replaced. I upgraded from 2GB to 4GB, my 32bit system reads 2.25GB. This will be fixed when moved to 64bit.

Cons: Heat spreader is thin and feels weak. There is less of a spreader compared to the Kingston HyperX it replaced. When pulling the old RAM out I noticed it was warm, though I will say that the new RAM has not overheated.

Other Thoughts: This was for a 680i SLI board from BFG. The board was rated for DDR2-800 but said it could be overclocked to 1066MHz. Because the board does not support 1066 directly I had to increase the clock speed manually and add 0.125v. The timings also had to be adjusted, but all this is due to my board and not the RAM.
