It’s been a while since we had a look at some DDR2 memory here on Driverheaven however the technology is growing in popularity as Intel users look to enhance the performance of their systems. Add to that the fact that AMD will be heading towards DDR2 later this year and you have a product which will become more and more popular as time goes on. Today’s review product comes from the memory experts at OCZ Technology and is their PC2-6400 (800MHz) memory.

We’ve high hopes for these sticks based on our experiences with previous OCZ memory so let’s see if they meet our expectations.

The Sticks

Something you can always say about OCZ’s high spec sticks is that they really do look the business. Our review product, the Gold 6400, feature Copper heat spreaders with a reflective gold effect.

Ours is the 2x512mb dual channel kit and features 2 240pin sticks with timings of 5-5-5-10 however you can get single 512mb modules as well as 2x1024mb kits. As the module names suggest the sticks run at 400mhz (800mhz DDR2) and so are ideal for high end Intel and Nforce based boards such as the Asus P5WD2.

This OCZ model is guaranteed to run at 1.9v however the modules are actually rated up to 2.2v (under warranty) which should be more than enough for the average overclockers out there.

Here are the full specs from the OCZ website:

800MHz DDR2

Also available in 1GB (2X512) and 2GB (2X1024) dual channel optimized kits
