Uptime is crucial when running any type of server whether it is a file repository, HTTP web server, or a simple SOHO server. Having downtime can lead to decreased productivity and ultimately a loss in revenue, if this is a company server or simply some headaches for personal servers. System memory is often one of these culprits that can from time-to-time encounter some memory conflicts or simply fail after years or rugged use. OCZ Technology has realized the misery that can come from downtime and the pain of waiting days, or even weeks, for replacement modules to arrive. With this in mind, OCZ has begun offering a PowerSwap warranty on a majority of their system memory modules. This warranty isn’t like that offered by OCZ’s competitors where they may offer a lifetime warranty but the second you overclock the modules, the warranty is void, or you have to wait days for an RMA to be processed. This very innovative PowerSwap warranty decreases downtime by ensuring expedited advanced replacement of its products, IC screening for superior performance, 100% hand-tested quality insurance, and 3.0 EVP. OCZ 3.0 EVP, or better known as Extended Voltage Protection, allows you to increase your voltages up to 3.0V (+/- 5%) without violating the PowerSwap warranty! The memory up for testing today, the OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Titanium, features the OCZ Lifetime PowerSwap warranty, but just how well does this RAM really run? In this review, we hit the OCZ memory up against Corsair, Mushkin, and Ultra Products modules in our usual Linux-style torture.

Features:

· 400MHz DDR
· CL 2-3-2-5 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
· Available in a 1GB (2x512) and 2GB (2x1024) Dual Channel Optimized Kit
· Unbuffered
· Enhanced Latency Technology
· Titanium Mirrored Copper Heatspreader
· 2.6 Volts
· 184 Pin DIMM
· OCZ Lifetime PowerSwap Warranty
· 3.0 EVP Extended Voltage Protection
· ULN2

Ignoring Ultra Products, who ship their RAM in a nice humidor-like wooden container, OCZ continues the trend, as with most RAM manufacturers, of simply packaging the modules in a petite plastic container. The memory we received today was a 1GB Dual Channel Kit (2 x 512MB), however, OCZ also offers a 2GB Dual Channel Kit (2 x 1GB). The paper backing inside of the plastic container is generic to OCZ’s Titanium series products, as it only contains some general OCZ information and we have seen it on other OCZ products. Both DDR modules come equipped with copper heatspreaders.
