OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Black Edition

Examination:

The heatsinks on these OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Black Edition modules are black too, which look quite nice and then in the center of each module is the "AMD Black Edition Ready" emblem. The aluminum heatsinks are OCZ's traditional XTC heatspreaders, which are simple yet effective, but not nearly as elaborate as the OCZ Reaper HPC, Flex XLC, and other high-end cooling contraptions. However, with the heatsinks maintaining a low profile you should not run into any compatibility issues with any motherboards or CPU coolers being obstructed by the memory modules.

The sticker on each of the modules confirm they are of 2GB capacity, AMD Black Edition Ready, rated for 8-8-8 timings at 1.65V, and have a part number of OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK. The memory PCBs are also black to match the XTC heatsinks.

These OCZ modules are specifically tested with AMD's Black Edition CPUs (particularly the Phenom 965BE and 955BE models) and with AMD 790FX / 790GX motherboards that offer AMD OverDrive capability for being able to benefit from profiles with their software for "plug and play" performance enhancements. The AMD OverDrive (AOD) capable motherboards listed on OCZ's web-site for the DDR3 PC3-12800 Black Edition (OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK) is the ASUS M4A79T Deluxe and Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6.

Like OCZ's other memory, this Black Edition kit is backed by a lifetime warranty.
