Conclusion:

When you think of OCZ, you think of high performance memory. Now turn 180° around. OCZ also makes memory to meet price and performance needs of all different varieties. The PC2-8000 4GB set is just one of these price-performance products. What enthusiast does not want four gigabytes of system memory? I know I do! At the stock speeds of 500MHz this set will run a 1:1 ratio with all but the best frontside bus clocking chips on the market. The vast majority of enthusiasts do not have a 500MHz chip, so these modules give you the speed without having to massively overvolt the memory to get the results you need. Even though the stock speeds fell slightly behind, they held their own in every benchmark, never letting go. Even with the slightly slower speeds they were running, they are a good bang for buck, being only about $.03 per megabyte.

During testing, even while overclocked, the XTC heatspreader did well dispersing the heat, keeping the modules cool to the touch even without any active cooling fans on them. OCZ tops them off with a Lifetime Warranty and Extended Voltage Protection for those who like to speed up components past manufactured speeds. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone needing inexpensive memory in a large capacity. You would not go wrong with the OCZ Platinum Edition PC2-8000 4GB set.

 

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Large Capacity
  • XTC Heat Spreader
  • EVP Protection
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Low Stock Latency

 

Cons:

  • No EPP Profiles
