OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 2GB Gold Edition Dual Channel

Just a few short years ago, 1GB of memory was considered overkill for home PC users and only the financially elite enthusiasts were able to run such high amounts. Over the years, however, applications and games have become more and more demanding with 1GB of memory becoming the minimum for any system. For overclockers however it was often a different story. The NVIDIA nForce2 chipsets that were most popular back in the day sometimes had problems reaching high overclocks with 2 sticks of 512MB RAM, so overclockers looking to reach maximum memory frequencies still stuck with 2 sticks of 256MB RAM. However as nForce2 was phased out, and memory controllers improved, these problems became outdated and most users have made the jump to 1GB. The next jump is 2GB, and because of the improved memory controller in the E3 (Venice) revision of the AMD Athlon 64, many have already made this significant move. Users are not only able to run two sticks of 1GB DDR, but are also able to run them at 1T timings and even reach very decent and respectable overclocks. Some lucky users have even been able to reach 300MHz at timings of 3-3-3-8 1T! We will try to see if we can get anywhere close to that with our OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 2 x 1024MB Gold Edition Dual Channel kit.

As usual with OCZ, the modules are packed in their universal plastic container. Proudly displayed in front and center of the package were the shiny OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 Gold Edition Dual Channel modules. The paper backing in the case is also universal to all OCZ modules, but we had noticed some slight alterations to it since the last time we had OCZ in our labs, and simply provides some general information about awards and also mentions OCZ's Lifetime Warranty.
