Conclusions


The time is right to upgrade that old 2 gig PC2-5300 kit you've had for a while with a high performance 4 gig kit. Newer games like Crysis really prefer 4 gigs of memory, as do many new applications.

The OCZ PC2-8000 Platinum Edition 4 gig kit is an excellent candidate for that upgrade. It will perform from below DDR2-800 to over DDR2-1000. It will operate at the DDR2 standard Vdimm of 1.8v, all with nice timings. The XTC heatspreaders keep the memory nice and cool and look great.

The Platinum Edition didn't overclock that high over the advertised settings, but that is what OCZ's Reaper and ReaperX memory product lines are for.

At the time of this writing, you can pick up a 4 gig kit of the PC2-8000 Platinum Edition for $119. Did you ever imagine getting a 4 gig kit of RAM for anywhere near that price?

Pros:

Sharp looking and effective heat spreaders
Operates from below DDR2-800 to above DDR2-1000 will run on most PCs
Incredibly low priced

Cons:

Some may be disappointed in the overclocking results

The OCZ PC2-8000 Platinum Edition 4 gig kit earns the OCIA.net Seal of Approval
