Reaper HPC s OCZ PC2 8500 Reaper HPC Series

OCZ unveiled the OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper HPC Series. This 2GB dual channel kit
features the proprietary OCZ Reaper HPC (Heat Pipe Conduit) heatspreader,
engineered to deliver superior silent heat dissipation over traditional
heatspreaders. As heat rises into the thermo-conductive copper heat pipe
conduit, it is dissipated through the strategically-placed compact aluminum fin
array. By guiding performance-robbing heat away from key memory components, the
unique Reaper HPC design helps facilitate improved overclocking performance,
while improving longevity and stability of the modules. The PC2-8500 Reaper HPC
series will be available in 2GB (2x1024MB) dual channel kits.

OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high
performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled the OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper
HPC Series. This 2GB dual channel kit features the proprietary OCZ Reaper HPC
(Heat Pipe Conduit) heatspreader, 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 the
strategically-placed compact aluminum fin array. By guiding performance-robbing
heat away from key memory components, the unique Reaper HPC design helps
facilitate improved overclocking performance, while improving longevity and
stability of the modules.

“Overclocking and efficient cooling do not have to be noisy. The Reaper HPC
series integrates silent heat pipe technology into a premium memory product line
to assure perfect thermal management of the latest generation of OCZ high-speed
DDR2 modules,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at
OCZ Technology. ”Any noise-conscious end user relying on silent passive cooling
while demanding the highest performance will embrace the quality balance of
features and innovative design found in the new Reaper HPC series.”

The first modules to be incorporated with the new Reaper heatsink are rated at
1066MHz and run at CL 5-5-5. Featuring an EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles)
programmed SPD, PC2-8500 Reaper HPC modules will immediately boot at the rated
specs on the latest generation of NVIDIA® SLI™ chipsets. Although the OCZ Reaper
HPC series was coined for enthusiasts, EPP eliminates the need for manual
configuration and makes memory optimizations a household item for the complete
range of consumers looking to maximize system performance through overclocking.

The PC2-8500 Reaper HPC series will be available in 2GB (2x1024MB) dual channel
kits. As part of OCZ’s line-up of premium memory, PC2-8500 modules are backed by
a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support.
