Over the years of OCZ's existence, the engineers at OCZ Technology have run rampant with their memory creations from the incredibly robust flash-based Rally series to their XTC-covered DDR and DDR2 modules. Throughout their six years of manufacturing, they have even won numerous awards from Phoronix for their tightly timed and high frequency system memory modules. We are once again looking at OCZ Technology as we have a pair of DDR2 PC2-8000 Platinum XTC Enhanced Latency memory modules sitting in our hands. These modules are designed to run at a 1.00GHz frequency with 5-5-5-15 timings. On top of its competitive performance edge, these modules also utilize OCZ's XTC heatspreaders for Xtreme Thermal Convection -- which premiered last year with their DDR modules. In addition, these modules are backed by OCZ's lifetime warranty and EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) coverage.

Like past DDR and DDR2 products we have sampled from OCZ Technology, the dual channel memory kit had shipped in a small plastic container. This form of packaging is universal to OCZ memory, even when it comes to the paper insert that displays various highlights and awards. While the OCZ DDR2 PC2-8000 Platinum XTC Enhanced Latency memory is available in 512MB and 1024MB varieties, our kit for testing today was a 2 x 1GB retail set.
