First Looks and Specifications

The OCZ Reapers come in a snap open plastic case, the kind you don't have to use scissors on. On the front, we get a nice view of the modules, and the back offers a nice chart on the idea behind the HPC design. Very standard packaging here for the Reapers.

The Reaper heatspreaders are matte black aluminum. Connected to the aluminum is the copper heatpipe, with another matte black aluminum heatspreader attached. On the front of the heatspreader is an OCZ logo sticker, as well as a warranty/specifications sticker. Under the heatspreader is a green PCB.

Full specifications from the OCZ website are:

The Reaper PC3-10666 sticks are rated at 1333MHz, as their name suggests. Timings of 6-6-6 are relatively good for this frequency, but they come at an energy price. The sticks come at a stock voltage of 1.75V, which is a little more than the 1.5V that most companies aim for, and will certainly add a little heat to the modules. Good thing there are heatpipes on these sticks!

Designed with overclockers in mind, the Reapers are protected under their classic OCZ lifetime warranty up to 1.8V. Though this isn't a whole lot of room, it's enough to give the kit an extra bit of oomph. Continue on as we get these in our rig and test ‘em out!
