OCZ is extremely excited to announce the
PC-3200 and PC-3500 Gold GX series modules which will be the first two products
to utilize the latest OCZ heatspreader design. The new, patent-pending XTC (Xtreme
Thermal Convection) Heatspreaders allow increased ventilation and heat
dissipation due to an innovative honeycomb design providing more direct access
to the actual memory ICs.
The PC-3200 and PC-3500 Gold Gamer eXtreme Series with 2-2-2-5 timings will be
the first OCZ memory parts to include the new XTC heatspreader.
The PC-3200 & PC-3500 Gold GX XTC series will be available in 512MB modules
and 1GB (2×512) dual channel optimized kits.

OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high
performance and high reliability memory, is extremely excited to announce the
PC-3200 and PC-3500 Gold GX series modules which will be the first two products
to utilize the latest OCZ heatspreader design. The new, patent-pending XTC (Xtreme
Thermal Convection) Heatspreaders allow increased ventilation and heat
dissipation due to an innovative honeycomb design providing more direct access
to the actual memory ICs.

The unique design used in the XTC heatspreaders optimizes the thermal management
of memory modules by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection
throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional heatspreader
designs. In this manner, build-up of heat is avoided and thermal dissipation of
the memory components is offloaded more efficiently through the honeycomb
design. At the same time, mechanical stability is maintained.

“Memory modules that implement conventional, solid heatspreaders provide
sufficient heat dissipation but do not adequately address the build up of heat
pockets; The new Xtreme Thermal Convection Heatspreader design tackles this
problem and more," commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development
at OCZ Technology. "Our goal is to get rid of the thermal load as quickly and
efficiently as possible. A honeycomb perforation contour promotes the physical
escape of hot air from the space in between the individual memory components,
thus enhancing the performance of the high performance Gold GX series and
preserving the life of the ICs and future parts to come.”

The PC-3200 and PC-3500 Gold Gamer eXtreme Series with 2-2-2-5 timings will be
the first OCZ memory parts to include the new XTC heatspreader. The new Gold GX
series modules are designed and qualified with special selection of premium
components to maximize performance when playing even the most demanding graphics
intensive games. With the addition of the new gold mirrored XTC heatspreader,
the GX series in now better than ever.

The PC-3200 & PC-3500 Gold GX XTC series will be available in 512MB modules and
1GB (2×512) dual channel optimized kits. All OCZ memory solutions come backed
with an industry-leading lifetime warranty and toll-free, direct technical
support for unparalleled piece of mind!
