Now that we are well into the lifespan of DDR3, the focus for many enthusiasts has turned to speed and capacity. With 64-bit operating systems now a viable option, it makes sense for end users to have over 4GB of system memory. Those who do video editing or extensive Photoshop work know how important it is to have a substantial amount of system memory on tap. For those that want the best of both worlds (fast and high capacity), we present today's review product, the OCZ Flex EX DDR3 12GB Triple Channel Memory kit.
The OCZ Flex EX arrived in the hanging retail package seen above. Cutouts on the front show two of the three large modules inside (with the specifications sticker visible) while the reverse lists some product award logos and a diagram of how the water cooling channels work. Below is a list of specifications, borrowed from OCZ's website.
Let's move ahead and take a closer look at the OCZ Flex EX PC3-17000 memory kit.
