OCZ catered to its core audience of overclockers on Thursday and introduced Reaper HPC Edition, some of its fastest-ever stock memory for PCs. The DDR2 memory achieves its 1066MHz and CL5 latency timings due to its new, namesake heatpipe conduit. Much as with silent-running PC and video card coolers, the heatpipe draws extra heat away from the RAM without resorting to fans. Such added cooling is combined with a smart controller that not only improves overclocking, but also lets the Reaper HPC boot right away at the rated settings on NVIDIA SLI-based mainboards without BIOS tweaks, the company says.
Reaper HPC will launch first as a 2x1GB memory kit for PCs that need dual-channel memory. Neither ship times nor pricing are available.
