    New OCZ BH-5 and VX , what to expect

    I just wanted to make a few notes concerning some of the new OCZ products so that people have a fair idea of what there getting , And what speeds to expect , so I will make a quick list


    OCZ " Value VX " PC-3200 Value with winbond UTT - ( should be priced around 130-140 USD )

    This product is only tested for the value specification , but uses winbond utt, a very high percentage will do 220-240 with the right voltage , with I would guess half overall do above 240 ( 2-2-2 ). A small percentage will do 2-2-2 at 2.85-2.9 volts ( these are lucky sticks , not the norm )
    if your trying to squeeze a few extra Mhz try 2-3-2

    OCZ PC-3200 VX ( 2nd lowest in pricing about 200USD now and dropping )

    You guys should know what to expect now , but I will state it for the record
    these do on average 240 , many people after burn in get higher I have seen 250-260 ( I am sure not many do 260 ) , if your getting over 250 dont trade these in for VX-4000 , it just not a good deal if your trying to squeeze a few extra Mhz try 2-3-2


    OCZ-4000 VX ( price should be dropping )

    These should do at least the specification , but these of course dont have the same overhead the VX-3200 do , they are meant for those who want to hit 250 minimum, now some percentage of these will do 260 or even 265 after burn in , but thats not certain , only a very small percentage of the WB UTT chips meet our test specification for VX-4000.


    OCZ PC-3200 Gold 2-2-2 ( should be priced less than PC-3200 plat rev 2 )

    New Product using BH die , does 2-2-2 at 2.85 , higher speeds at higher voltages are possible but we dont screen for those , we screen for 2-2-2 at the lowest voltage


    For those of you who have asked , where do all the lower performing chips go
    most end up in these products.

    OCZ PC-3200 Value ( not listed as a winbond chip )
    OCZ PC-2700 performance


    Just wanted to make sure everyone knows what to expect.

    3200 Gold is the newest product. It will take a week or two to get into the channels. This should be a hot item, so look soon.

    I just want people to know what there getting , I mean sometimes people have strange expectations out of a product ,

    Example
    Just because half of the people hit 265 2-2-2 in a screen shot doesnt mean every unit can do that ,

    I think this is what those people need to know... And maybe finally they will understand. 265 out of VX sticks for EVERYDAY and fully stable use is REALLY good. Those should be good for, say, 270 for some benchmarking. And those would be VERY lucky sticks.
    But one just can't expect 270 from every pair and RMA it when one hits 255 only... It's all about REASONABLE, down to earth expectations.

    Thanx Ryan...

    will be better if they are on brainpower, IMHO. I'll buy a pair just to try, if they are not too expensive.

    thanks for the heads up Ryan, is there any chance some of the VX line are using BH or are they all based on the CH/UTT die?

    We only use BP PCB pretty much and have done for well over a year now. Remember we were pretty much the first to do so and all others have followed.

    I thought the "new" stuff would be the EL PC4000 VX Gold @ 2,2,2 (+/- 3.0v). What happened to that?

    P.S. I had just read a review yesterday over at Amandtech dated March 4th, 2005. Has the RAM been on the market for a while and Amantech just reviewed it late? Or is there some new stuff coming out?

    Wow... I don't think there has ever been a time where at the same time the consumer has had so many chips performing at an average of 250fsb.

    Curious, what is MSRP? I just ordered a pair from newegg last week, it's going to go lower than $260?!

    Also, thanks for the heads up on the 3200 gold, care to say what that should be going for?

    QFT. I think andy said it best in a thread a while back:
    "If we could get PC4400 speeds out of these we would be selling that."
