OCZ Blade 6GB DDR3, 2000MHz, CAS7
So the modules we are testing today are one of OCZs triple channel memory DIMM kits. Let's have a look at packaging and modules.
Packaging ... hey we show you everything my man, and now you know what look for in the stores. Courtesy of Guru3D.com, are we cool or what, huh? ;) By the way, does that packaging remind you of something?
Hint: the Monolith from 2001: A space Odyssey.
Hello Dave: what no no .. I'm serious, I mean look. We could make a movie out of it and call it 2009: A space Oddity.
Okay lame puns aside. Meet OCZ's Blade series memory. This is the 6GB 2000 MHz kit. Mind you that there is a cheaper CAS9 version available as well. Nice design, black PCB and heat spreaders made out of aluminum for optimal heat conductivity.
A rather nice threesome. This kit can manage latencies of 7-8-7-24 at a 2T command rate / 1.65 Volts, soeweeeet. Under the heatspreaders, you'd find Elpida IC's. And these are just awesome.
Today we test the Blade DDR3 C7 memory kit from OCZ. To date this is the fastest memory kit I have ever seen in my test system, showing numbers that are breathtaking. With 64-bit operating systems in mind, the DDR3 kit we'll be testing today comes in a 6GB Triple channel (3x 2GB) flavor and check it .. is clocked at 2000 MHz !
