  • newegg XTC Heatspreaders XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders optimize the thermal management of memory modules by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional heatspreaders. Thus build-up of heat is avoided and thermal dissipation of the memory components is offloaded more efficiently through the honeycomb design to maintain mechanical stability.
  • newegg DDR2 800 DDR2 800 delivers incredible performance and platform compatibility with up to 6.4GB/s memory bandwidth for the ultimate work and gaming power!

5 out of 5 eggsPlug-n-Play

Pros: After plugging in the memory the motherboard immediately recognized it and configured it to run as advertised. 1.8V running at 800MHZ.

Cons: I have observed none.

Other Thoughts: Don't let the wording, "Vista Upgrade" fool you. I used this memory with XP Pro SP3 with absolutely no problems. This hardware is very sturdy and I definitely recommend it for anyone out to purchase every-day use memory.

*NOTE* Check your motherboard's manufacturer's website for documentation as to what memory types are supported and verified stable with your motherboard! It will help you avoid many heart-aches.

2 out of 5 eggsOcz Vista upgrade 2GB

Pros: Like I said in the last post. They work.

Cons: Just not in my computer.

Other Thoughts: I thank you folks at OCZ for wishing to work with me. But I did try to change the BIOS. But my Dell will not let me. My friend has a Cyber Cafe, where he fixes Computers. He will find somebody who can use these ram sticks. So it's all good. No harm, no foul. Memory is a touchy thing. My friend put them in one of his Computers, and it would not even fire up. So I then took them back to my house, used the UBCD to memtest them. And, Lo, and behold. They worked from the boot CD.
The bottom line is this,,, They work great, for probably a bunch of systems.
And you got to thank OCZ for being prompt with offering help.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are always willing to work with our customers to find a fix or replace their memory with a product that will work for them. We are happy that you are understanding about the situation, and want to thank you for your kind words.
Cheers

5 out of 5 eggsRuns great!

Pros: Runs perfectly, couldn't ask for better RAM at that price.

Runs at exactly what it says just fine on all versions of Windows.

Originally I got 2GB, but I just ordered 2GB more today; great product.

Cons: None at all.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent RAM...

Pros: Ran great at 800MHz (4-4-4-12) in my gigabyte p35-DS3P for over a year...

Cons: then 1 day one stick went from PC2-6400 to PC2-5300 and wouldn't run at 800 at all even with looser timings. Not that I really need them at 800 since my E6700 will not run at 1600FSB, at least not air cooled.

Other Thoughts: RMA'd with OCZ. shipping them out tomorrow. I have the older edition (not black heatspreader). I hope that they don't have these in stock and I get an upgrade, but I know thats not gonna happen since I can buy 3 packs of these for the same price I paid for one before.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It is what it is, mainly got it since it had heat spreaders on it and heat spreaders look cool.

Cons: One stick came DOA, thankfully Newegg RMAed it that day. Maybe should have gone with Corsair.

Other Thoughts: OCZ is supposed to be a top company but there are always going to be bad product every once and a while.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Buy

Pros: Does absolutely everything DDR2 800 RAM should, but just in more reasonable price range. Nothing special about it, except for the fact that it looks pretty in your system.

Cons: It's not free.

3 out of 5 eggsJust Wondering...

Pros: Read below

Cons: Read below

Other Thoughts: I was wondering...
I have been reading the reviews and have noticed something very interesting...
On the newegg website, the ram is listed with the following two specs

Timing 5-5-5-15
Voltage 1.8V

Now, I have been reading the reviews and this information seems to be false. The correct voltage listed in reviews is 2.1v and timings listed in the reviews are 5-6-6-18
For others like myself who are looking at buying this, we see supposedly incorrect voltages and timings listed on the newegg spec page for this product.

I was hoping the manufacturer could help me out by telling me what the correct timings and voltages are for this specific product. Would be a big help, especially if you notified newegg of this error. :D

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, the timings and voltage are 5-6-6-15 and 1.8v. The OCZ product page is located at the link below.
Sorry for any confusion, thank you.
