As can be seen in many Phoronix articles and in the memory reviews themselves, OCZ memory is quite common to Phoronix. While OCZ Technology is only eight years old, they have done a phenomenal job at building a terrific brand that is highly regarded among enthusiasts, gamers, and professionals. OCZ has expanded over the years from just being a system memory producer to a vendor of interesting flash drives and high-performance SSDs, among other products, but in this review we have caught ourselves looking at another OCZ DDR3 memory kit. The OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Black Edition kit is specifically designed for use with AMD's latest processors and chipsets.

Specifications:

- 1600MHz DDR3
- CL 8-8-8-24 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
- 1.65 Volts
- Available in 4GB D/C kits
- Black Edition Ready XTC
- Lifetime Warranty
- Unbuffered
- 240 Pin DIMM

OCZ continues packaging their dual channel memory kits in a simple plastic sleeve like the one they have done for years, but with the OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Black Edition (OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK) they have moved to using a black and white cardboard insert rather than their traditional orange coloring. This kit has 2 x 2GB DDR3-1600MHz modules. OCZ's AMD Black Edition memory is available in two different DDR3-1600MHz models with either CAS 7 timings or CAS 8, with our review sample courtesy of OCZ being the higher one.
