OCZ's Gold Edition DDR2 memory module sets the standards for high speed memory modules. This quad channel 8GB memory kit was created for power users and is rated to run at 800MHz with CL 5-5-5 timings for blinding fast performance. Each kit is 100% hand tested for flawless function and compatibility.

Heat is the biggest threat to any system. That’s why the exclusive XTC heat spreaders take advantage of micro convection currents that occur in the channels between the individual memory chips. The gold mirrored honeycomb design facilitates maximum heat distribution. The rigid frame also helps reinforce structural rigidity in the module. Custom computer builders will also enjoy displaying the OCZ logo on each heat spreader.

Power users that want to push their system to its limits can overclock with peace of mind. With OCZ’s 2.2V EVP plan users can push the VDIMM on the motherboard up to 2.2V without voiding the warranty. Add OCZ to your personal computer and take your system to new levels today!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM, bad stick

Pros: Fast RAM, having 8 Gigs was nice.

Cons: One of the sticks failed within 12 hours on burnin, machine BSOD'ed the next morning after install. Ran memtest on it one stick at a time and found the offending stick.

Other Thoughts: Running a ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus, 2.66 intel dual core. Ran like a dream till the stick failed. BIOS Version 1502

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry for the problem. Please RMA with Newegg for fastest service. OCZ support can be reached at the link below if you prefer.

1 out of 5 eggsEmbrace the Suck

Pros: well known normally good manufacturer

Cons: I have ran 4 memory modules from another line of OCZ and never had any issues running serious overclocks stable for nearly 4 years strait and I have them back in now. This is my sixth set of OCZ memory and it is horrid. Apparently 2 sticks had shown up with issues out of the box and I'm just now getting to deal with so I'm out side of the return policy with the egg. Outside of being DOA these required such high voltage to run on the NB I don't know that anyone could sustain it without liquid cooling the whole board.

Other Thoughts: 2 EGG instead of one just for OCZ tech they were fairly quick to respond, We will see how RMA goes. I should have tested taken the time to test them when they came in so I could have just exchanged them with the egg and went back to reapers.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the problem. Your replacement kit should work out fine for you, and if we can be of any help, please visit our support forums at the link below.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor QA

Pros: Fast memory
Relatively inexpensive per GB

Cons: One stick was dead within 2 weeks.

Other Thoughts: So, the real reason this is getting 2 eggs is due to OCZ's QA. See, I understand one bad stick of RAM, so I was more than happy to submit an RMA. Unfortunately I had to send back all four sticks but that was okay with me. About 2 weeks after initial RMA request they fulfilled the order with 2 kits of OCZ2P8004GK. Unfortunately, one of those sticks was DOA. So essentially, I am now RMAing a RMA.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the problem. Our support staff will see that you are well taken care of.

2 out of 5 eggs8 GB

Pros: -My OS was capable of handling the 8 GB. no problem.
-Took the heat off my GTX 275 (major pro)
-Looks nicely built

Cons: No difference from a generic 4 GB set.
Meaning: Same Windows Index score as a 4 GB set.

Other Thoughts: I installedit into my Windows 7 64 bit system no problem. everything was going good until it started making programs in my OS crash.
i reinstalled Win7. checked out the BIOS settings
I didn't expect it to be the RAM until i switched back to my old generic 4 GB set. i ran memtest and it got the blue screen. it was a major dissapointment...

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you are having difficulties. Doubling your memory load to 8gb puts additional stress on your memory controller, often requiring a few simple BIOS changes to achieve stability. Please visit our support forums at the link below and post in the memory section. We will assist you with settings to get you running properly. As a side note, the Window Index Score does not care if you have 4gb or 8gb installed, as this change has nothing to do with everyday system performance. The additional memory is helpful when running memory intensive apps, such as Photoshop, and some 3D games.
Thank you

5 out of 5 eggskiller upgrade

Pros: Matched DDR2-800 memory, good compatibility, fair price

Cons: None with the memory.

Other Thoughts: When I first installed this my Asus M3N-HT Deluxe/HDMI it wouldn't even POST. I was on the 2602 BIOS, so I upgraded to 2904. Then it would POST and gave me an error about the memory configuration being wrong and suggested I reset the BIOS to factory defaults. I did that and it worked like a champ. I have everything in BIOS set to Auto and it works perfectly now.

1 out of 5 eggsIncompatible!

Pros: Price was reasonable.

Cons: Would not run more than two sticks (4GB) in My Asus P5N-D mobo. It would boot with 4 (eventually) but Win 7 64 bit would freeze within a few mouse clicks.

Other Thoughts: I spoke with OCZ support and they gave me settings which differed from the settings recommended by their own support techs in various forums and the settings on the sticker. And yes, I did jack up the north brigde voltage to 1.5 volts to meet the higher demand of 4 - 2 gig sticks. Asus told me they don't recommend OCZ but their qualified vender list hasn't been updated since the mobo came out. They say it's the memory manufacturers job to test their own RAM in all the hundreds of boards out there.
In my humble opinion, that was my first and last OCZ purchase.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry for the problem. For many older motherboards, 8gb of RAM proves to be difficult to run at higher speeds. Slowing your speed to 667mhz will probably allow you to run 8gb of memory, although we realize that is not what you expect. When older boards were built, 8gb of memory was seldom run, and rarely available in a kit that would hit 800mhz. As far as testing, we do test on many different platforms, but testing on every board ever produced is not possible.
Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsStill on the Fence

Pros: Worked great for like 2 months then one stick went bad...OCZ Customer Service process was easy enough to get an RMA BUT you have to send all 4 Dimms back which sucks if you dont have a backup. Still working Great after replacement.

Cons: I have found that you have to manually set up your ram in the bios to get them to run at the advertised speed and spec.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy a quad kit again since there is no real benefit besides a price discount. It is DUAL channel there is no such thing as QUAD Channel so better off buying two DUAL channel kits so if a dimm goes bad you only have to send back the offending pair.

3 out of 5 eggscheck for compatibility

Pros: if it worked sure it would be great

Cons: does not work with Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P, Ive checked their forums, tried numerous voltage and speed settings, evey memtest comes out clean, but every real use experience gives BSOD after about 30mins of running .

Other Thoughts: just wish it worked, bought 8gb ram that I have to return

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you have had problems with this memory on your board. 8gb is a large memory load, and this is likely related to the issues you are seeing. Please see the link below for setting suggestions, as they may help resolve your issues. If you would like some personalized help, please post in the memory section. We are happy to help.
Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsThe only ram I buy for my systems

Pros: I just ordered and installed this in my system I purchase from here last year. I had the same ram installed for a year now with 1gb chips times 4. I swapped it out for this 8gb set and installed the old 4gbs in my wife's new system I just purchased from here. Rock solid look forward to having this around for a long time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: OCZ ram in my 3.4 single core 2X 1bg sticks still running great after 4+ years. I will never buy any ram other than OCZ for my systems.
