Conclusion:

OCZ Reaper HPC Edition PC2-9200 2GB DDR2-1150 set of memory was around the middle of the pack in the enthusiast memory market. I say this because the Mushkin XP2-9200 set performed slightly better overall. The OCZ Reaper set performed better than the Crucial Ballistix Tracer in almost every benchmark and the Crucial was stock at DDR2-1066 so that set is clearly at the bottom of the pack. I didn’t have any issues with the OCZ Reaper memory except that the unique heat pipe that is on top of the stick almost makes contact with my CPU cooler. If you have a wide CPU cooler, you might want to check measurements to make sure this set of memory won’t touch your cooler. I was glad that I could down clock the memory to 400MHz (DDR2-800) and have it run at 3-3-3-8, which are great timings for DDR2-800. Overclocking to 600MHz from 571MHz without changing the volts or timings was also nice to see. I did hope it would go a little bit higher without having to change the volts though. The performance of this OCZ memory was slightly less than that of the Mushkin memory, but I’d take this set over the Mushkin because it’s almost $100 cheaper. If you’re looking for quality, high performance memory, but don’t want to break the bank, check out the OCZ Reaper HPC Edition PC2-9200 2GB DDR2-1150 set.

 

Pros:

  • Unique heat-spreader
  • Tight timings at low frequencies
  • Overclocking Ability
  • DDR2-1155 Stock
  • Attractively Priced

 

Cons:

  • Comparable Performance
  • Size of heat-spreader (could be an issue for big CPU coolers)
