The team at OCZ are among those manufacturers. The past couple of months have seen OCZ release several new DDR2 memory kits, including the one we are looking at today, a 4 gig version of their popular PC2-8000 5-5-5 Platinum Edition. Will we get the performance from this Platinum Edition memory that we have come to expect from OCZ?
The PC2-8000 Platinum Edition comes in this hanging blister pack in the familiar OCZ colors. It isn't hermetically sealed and is fully reusable.

*XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders optimize the thermal management of memory modules by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional heatspreader designs. In this manner, build-up of heat is avoided and thermal dissipation of the memory components is offloaded more efficiently through the honeycomb design. At the same time, mechanical stability is maintained.
