OCZ introduces new DDR2 and DDR3 ReaperX kits

By Justin Mann on
This week, OCZ has introduced two new memory kits, trying to play up on the release of the resource-heavy Crysis. OCZ has announced additions to their “ReaperX” series, introducing a DDR2 kit alongside a new DDR3 kit. Both kits are aimed at gamers, and include the HPC cooling system.

The former of the two is a PC2-8000 kit available in 4GB configurations as a 2x2048MB kit, which will run at DDR2-1000 speeds. The latency on these modules is 5-5-5-18, while is ample. They do, however, require significantly higher voltage than standard DDR2 modules to achieve these speeds at 2.1V.

The DDR3 kit is also available in a 2GB or 4GB configurations. They will be using similar latencies of 6-5-5-18 at 1.85V, again significantly higher than the stock 1.5V of DDR3 modules. With voltages so high, having those expanded heatsinks is probably a necessity.
