Chew* is back at it with a new review of some AMD Black Edition optimized memory from OCZ Technology. This memory comes in two varieties, CAS7 and also CAS8, and is rated for 1600MHz @ 1.65v. What differentiates these kits from other kits with the same speeds and timings are that they come packed pre-loaded with special SPD profiles, only for AMD Phenom II Black Edition processors! What this enables the user to do is load up their AMD OverDrive utility, load the Black Edition memory profile, and bam…you’re cruising along at tight timings and 1600MHz.
While this memory certainly makes it easier for the more casual enthusiast to maximize his performance, that doesn’t mean the sticks don’t have more left in them for the truly extreme individuals! Check out the full review over at the TechREACTION forums to see how Chew* tortured these sticks.
One more thing…don’t forget to check the very bottom of the review! Chew* has been kind enough to include some bios profiles from his Gigabyte UD5P motherboard for use with these sticks. The profiles come pre-tuned and can be utilized with any Black Edition CPU. Check ‘em out!
