Conclusion:

Looking back at all of the results, for a majority of our real world testing all of the different memory modules was neck-and-neck at stock speeds. The biggest competition for the OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Titanium RAM probably came from the Ultra Products RAM, as it was able to run at identical speeds and memory timings. The memory used on the Ultra PC3200, however, was from ProMOS (V58C2256804SAT5B). Although for a majority of the benchmarks, the race was too close to call a definitive winner, OCZ does have a few unique things packed into its RAM. First of all, the PowerSwap warranty is great for overclockers who wish to increase their memory voltage without invalidating the lifetime warranty! In addition, the warranty is also great for those of us who maintain important servers and can’t wait enduring amounts of time in order to get memory modules replaced, where as OCZ offers an expedited replacement service. Although we weren’t able to tweak the memory timings much or overclock very far, due to the server motherboard we used in this review, the OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Titanium memory performed very well at stock speeds in all of our testing. Overall, we were very satisfied from what we have seen today with the OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Titanium memory, with its tight timings, impressive build quality, and reliable performance.

Pros:

· Good performance
· Quality heatspreaders
· Reasonably priced (~ $180)
· Low latency
· BrainPower PCB
· ULN2
· PowerSwap Warranty

Cons:

· No major flaws
