    OCZ Technology Announces World’s Fastest 4GB Kit, the Innovative PC2-9200 Flex II

    OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled the Flex II memory series, designed for blazing speeds demanded by enthusiasts. These premium modules run at incredibly fast DDR2-1150 speeds for high-performance systems with integrated water-cooling. Designed to the very core to offer enthusiasts the thermal management innovation of hybrid water and passive cooling, the new PC2-9200 Flex II Series offers rock-solid stability and performance for your high-end gaming or overclocking system.







    The OCZ Flex II heat management solution enables high-frequency memory to operate within an optimal balance of extreme speeds and low latencies without the high temperatures that inhibit or damage the module. Each PC2-9200 Flex II memory module features this breakthrough thermal management technology from OCZ. Combining an effective new heatspreader design with integrated liquid injection system and dedicated channels directly over the module’s ICs, Flex II effectively dissipates heat produced by high-speed memory. This sophisticated series was engineered with a unique “flexible” design to give enthusiasts the option to run the modules passively or water cooled via the thick array of aluminum fins, and the concurrent use of both options promotes maximum heat dissipation.



    “One of the side effects of extreme memory speeds is an increase in performance robbing heat, and the new Flex II modules are among the most powerful memory solutions in the market place yet are able to remain cool and stable with an innovative new cooling design,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “The thermal power is addressed using what we believe is the most advanced memory cooling solution currently available, suited for either liquid or air cooling system configuration to unleash the full power of 4 GB of DDR2 at the highest possible frequency.”

    The PC2-9200 Flex II modules are optimized for the latest cutting edge platforms and will be available in high-capacity 4GB (2x2048MB) dual channel kits for the latest gaming, 64-bit operating systems, and CAD applications. In its continued effort to make overclocking a user-friendly pastime, OCZ includes all the necessary accessories right in the box to setup your unique water-cooling system immediately after purchase, without the inconvenience of searching for additional hardware. As part of OCZ’s line-up of premium memory, the Flex II series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support.

    Harnessing the elite performance of high speeds, tight timings, and leading-edge heat dissipation, the unparalleled design of the new Flex II is a complete, all-encompassing solution certain to set a new standard for serious enthusiasts.

    with other wc solutions for ram the water stays at the top, I wonder if the way ocz did it with those new flex modules helps a lot since the water is far closer to the heat source, someone from here should torture some in a review.

    Not bad Can the ICs used be confirmed or denied?

    What chips? And what price? Will they work at those speeds on X38/48 or only with NVIDIA chipsets?

    How restrictive this is would be a deciding factor for many people if you ask me.

    If it's not restrictive to any serious enough degree I imagine it would be a solid product, but if not... Seems rather worthless as there's already many existing ram watercooling blocks which can allow four sticks to fit and are relatively unrestrictive.

    Although personally I've never seen the point of super high end ultra RAMs period myself. Rather get some affordable sticks with good ICs and cool them whichever way I need.

    I am talking only needing 2.1V to run 1200 or more.

    No IC info, yet.

    I think scaling past 2.1v is unlikely. Did you guys test if H20 gives any improvement over a fan?

    Look forward to reviews, looks cool Ill give you that.

    like the new coolers

    my d9gmh can't do 1200 @ 2.3V

    To be a professional noob/idiot
    * Default factory speed is for noobs.
    * Everything must go above the speed that the factory consider safe.
    * Everything for more performance
    * Everything fits, and everything can be broken.
    * Most problems can be fixed by adding a volt or two.
    * Post things in your signature that makes no sense at all.

    I really want to see strong compatibility with X38 boards. If you can only run them at their rated speeds in non-Intel chipsets, then they're pointless for me.

    What are those barbs for, 3mm ID tubes?

    Do these even sell? I'd much prefer a simple finned heatsinks to this slot-

    Can you discuss what chipset thats on? If the ICs are PSC, I cant see that being P35 compatable.

    Im thinking through my fingers- im guessing the RAM is ideally suited to nV chipsets or it might be early sampling of Microns 68nm chips?

    true my gbpqs top out @ 1100, but hey i paid 70€ for them

    but i don't see the point of these sticks as people who are willing to spend that much for watercooled ram kits simply go for DDR3....


    EEDIT: nvm didn'T check the flexx prices recently, thought they still cost an arm and a leg....

    Drool tastic they are going to be my next ram upgrade

    can anyone one confirm if they will work well on x38 mobo's is a review out ????

    What size are the barbs on the coolers, Any internal shots of the heat spreaders. 2.1v @1200 is very good news.

    Can 4 be fitted or is the heat spreader to big for 2 sticks next to one another?

    I glad to see OCZ is still getting new and exciting DDr2 Ram and DDr3 isn't stealing all the limelight.


    Edit (borrowed from OCZ's site)
    1150MHz DDR2
    CL 5-5-5-18
    Available in 4GB (2x2048) Dual Channel Kits
    Unbuffered
    OCZ Lifetime Warranty
    2.1 Volts
    240 Pin DIMM
    2 x 1/4" ID (inner diameter) barbs

    Special Features

    Flex II XLC Heatsink*
    2.15 EVP**

    Package Contents:

    Flex II Memory Kit
    3/8" and 1/2" Barb Adaptors
    4-Way Manifold Barb
    40" Plastic Tube
    Manual

    Part Numbers

    4GB (2x2048) D/C Kit PN - OCZ2FXT11504GK



    Important Note: Due to the width of the heatsink, Flex II memory kits cannot be installed on motherboards that require the modules to be inserted in sockets side by side. A maximum of one Flex II dual channel kit will fit on any motherboard with dual sockets.

    so a choice of barbs and no 8 gb should anyone want to go there!!!!

    No Review's yet... PR just went up on OCZ.com today. Don't expect product for at least 2 - 3 weeks on store shelves.

    Just talked to the engineer...test platform was P35...so should be good to go on P35/X38/X48.
    NV chipsets have not shown a real liking to 2GB modules at high speeds (or at least my boards don't) so we are planning more NV testing.

    No, 4 cannot fit, just like ReaperX. If you have a board with Dual Channel slots right next to each other...they are not going to fit. Disclaimer is on the product page.

    Well they are Alu blocks and how restrictive are these blocks? Meanwhile it looks damn cute
    The first thing i learnt in the wc forum was not to mix metals. Or has this law been change or
    am i missing something. Do we get to see these rams with the normal heat sinks(Price cut).

    These chips only use standard PCB? Not the OCZ 8-layer?

    Wonder why the flagship 4gb kit wouldnt use the best pcb.
