OCZ Flex II 4GB PC2-9200 DDR2 Memory Review

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Sep 09, 2008 7:51 am

OCZ breathes new life into DDR2 with their highspeed 4GB Flex II memory kit. Running at a sleek DDR2-1150MHz, this kit brings 4 gigabytes of memory with low latencies and high bandwidth. The hybrid water and passive cooling heat spreaders offer a range of cooling methods that help boost performance, but at 1150MHz is it really needed? Of course!

The OCZ PC2-9200 Flex II 4GB memory kit steps up the game for 4GB memory kits. No longer does 4GB have to be associated with slow and loose timings. Focusing solely at the performance available, this kit really does give you the flexibility to choose between tight timings or high frequencies with appreciable read, write, and copy bandwidth across the board. Factor in the overclocking, Extended Voltage Protection, and the Xtreme Liquid Convection heatsink and you've got a well rounded memory kit.

I actually tried to pour LN2 from one of the manifolds into an 1/8" tube and into a heatspreader, it would only bubble in the manifold and the plastic tubing snapped. If they were DDR3 modules I'd retry with copper piping but it isn't worth my time. Great kit though, 4 gigs of DDR2 with some crazy high speeds.

I am currently running a set of these on a DFI 680i LT, and I was wondering if you could share the BIOS voltage settings you used to reach your overclock. I am having a real tough time getting them to run at anything over 1066, albeit with 5-5-4-12 2T timings and a mere 1.95 volts. My Everest scores are right inline with the ones posted in the review, but I would sure like to get my DIMM's running at their rated speed, if only to test them for a short bit.

Thanks for the review! :prayer:

I was pushing 2.1v through the ram, it's rated voltage. Northbridge voltage was 1.45v I believe. Primary memory timings were set in BIOS, secondary timings left on auto. Memory was unlinked and ran at 1142MHz due to the "dividers" when unlinked. It was either 1142MHz or 1164MHz, chose 1142MHz as it was closer to stock. To be honest the sticks just plain worked. Was hoping for 1200MHz 5-5-5-15 but I'm certain my 780i MCH is slightly burnt out, it hasn't had an easy life.

Thank you very much for the reply...

I fear that my spp is weak as well, as I have tried all the settings you suggested already. OCZ thinks that the 680i spp has trouble with 4 Gb DIMM's, and I am inclined to agree with them, at least in my case with this board.

But I'll keep plugging away...

Thanks again, I really appreciate it :)
