Today we’ll be looking at OCZ’s newest addition to the EL DDR family, their EL DDR PC-3700 Gold memory.
It would be an understatement if
one said that the high end memory market was
Throughout the last few years we’ve seen companies
come and go, products fail and succeed, and DDR
memory become the number one choice memory choice
for enthusiasts and casual gamers alike.
However, there are only a handful
of memory companies that cater to the hardware
enthusiast, and these companies have faced a
over the last few years, should they travel the
path to lower latencies or towards higher speeds
(and higher latencies). The front runners in the
enthusiast memory market include OCZ, Corsair,
and Kingston, and today we’ll be looking at a
company that has decided to travel both paths
and release products that work to achieve the
best possible timings while not forgetting the
highest possible memory speed.
This product line is of course the
OCZ EL DDR line of memory, and today we’ll be
looking at OCZ’s newest addition to the EL DDR
family, their EL DDR PC-3700 Gold memory.

From first glance, one can tell
that OCZ’s PC-3700 Gold memory is not your typical
DDR DIMM. For starters, OCZ’s trademark bronze
heatspreader is absent and in its place is of
course a new ‘Gold’ heatspreader, a very impressive
addition to the overall aesthetic of the memory,
making it something a LAN party patron would love
to show off.
Of course the PC-3700 Gold memory
is a unbuffered 184pin DIMM and yields best results
with Dual Channel memory motherboards,
the new Intel 875p motherboards.
