Today, published again an overclocking review of some High-End DDR2 memory modules.

The new OCZ PC2-8500 2GB Reaper HPC edition DDR2 RAM looks extraordinarily good and offers high overclocking, thanks to the excellent heatpipe cooling. OCZ permits the users to operate the modules with up to 2.35 V without loosing the OCZ Lifetime Warranty and this Vmem should be enough to achieve very good overclocking results.

If you like to know if the memory is also well overclockable with the default 1.80 Volt and what you're able to expect with an voltage increasment higher than 2.30 Volt, you shouldn't miss this review. All memory test results can be compared with all previously tested memory modules in the benchmark chart.

The memory modules are provided on a green plate with black passive heatsinks (heatspreader) to get lower temperatures with higher voltages and higher frequencies. And this heatspreader is connected to another heatsink with the integrated heatpipe (HPC means Heat Pipe Conduit). This offers additional cooling, which makes sense with these high memory voltages. Of course this cooling device looks also very nice and is surely an inducement to buy them ;-) Furthermore these modules comes with EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles) to get reduced latencies and high frequencies on latest generation motherboards with EPP support. Overclocking couldn't be easier!
