Over the years of reviewing OCZ system memory products several different heatspreader designs have appeared. OCZ's original XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) design was rather simple but it had done a fine job compared to some of the other heatspreaders. OCZ really splashed into the memory cooling game when they had unveiled the OCZ Flex XLC (Xtreme Liquid Convection) memory that could easily be integrated into a water cooling system. The Flex XLC memory was great and the 2GB DDR2-1150 had even made its way into doing some natural sub-zero overclocking. OCZ's latest heatspreader design, the Reaper HPC (Heat Pipe Conduit), utilizes a very effective heatpipe design and is able to nearly double the surface area for heat dissipation. Aside from the performance benefits, the Reaper HPC modules look rather unique.

The OCZ2RPR10662GK memory is designed to operate in dual channel mode at DDR2-1066MHz speeds with 5-5-5-15 timings using 2.3 Volts (2.35V EVP). These Reaper HPC modules also support NVIDIA's Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP).
