OCZ Technology Group, Inc.a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high
performance and high reliability memory, today announced the OCZ PC2-8500 AMD
CrossFire™ Reaper HPC Edition. As some of the highest performing modules on the
market, the PC2-8500 CrossFire features the exclusive OCZ CrossFire edition
Reaper HPC heatsink for advanced component cooling.

Tested and qualified under AMD’s renowned certification program, the PC2-8500
CrossFire series not only meets a high standard of quality, but guarantees
superior compatibly with CrossFire technology. Combined with AMD’s esteemed
CrossFire technology, the OCZ PC2-8500 certified series unleashes the
performance potential of the entire platform.

AMD enthusiasts and system builders will love the customized look of the new
Reaper kits; these modules are cooled with an exclusive AMD special Reaper HPC
(Heat Pipe Conduit) heatspreader displaying AMD’s “CrossFire Certified” emblem.
These unique DDR2-1066 modules feature the Reaper HPC (Heat Pipe Conduit)
heatspreader which is engineered to deliver superior silent heat dissipation
over traditional heatspreaders. The Reaper HPC is an innovative cooling solution
developed by OCZ to effectively minimize heat produced by high-speed memory. As
heat rises into the thermo-conductive copper heat pipe conduit, it is dissipated
through a compact aluminum fin array. By strategically guiding
performance-robbing heat away from key memory components, the unique Reaper HPC
design maximizes passive cooling to improve longevity and stability of the
modules.

The first certified Reaper HPC memory product available will be 2GB (2x1024MB)
dual channel kits optimized for the latest CrossFire platforms. Rated to run
with 5-5-5 timings, these modules offer gamers an additional performance edge
over conventional DDR2-1066 memory. The CrossFire Certified Reaper 2GB kit is
the supreme solution for gamers seeking the advantages of increased reliability
and bandwidth management from their memory. Each OCZ PC2-8500 CrossFire Reaper
module is backed by an industry leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical
support for unparalleled peace of mind.
