on dual module load at 2.6 volts +/- 5% DIMM Voltage. Certain chipsets/motherboards
may allow faster timings Due to chipset and motherboard differences on
a non JEDEC standard product Make sure to check our motherboard qualification
page for the exact information for your motherboard. OCZ Dual Channel
optimized EL DDR modules are rated to handle up to 2.8 volts with heatspreader
I'll give you a couple pictures of what you are to expect when the delivery
man brings your package.
The memory comes in a standard bubble packaging which will
shield it from minor damage, but not too much more. Make sure that your
online store has packaged it properly for transit.
To set the record straight, dual channel memory is in no
way really different than single channel memory. All that dual channel
memory is comprised of is two sticks of single channel memory that will
work together properly on a dual channel configuration enabled motherboard.
All dual channel kits are "supposed" to be tested
work together properly with no errors on any of the dual channel enabled
boards such as the Intel Springdale (865P(E)), Canterwood (875P) and Nforce2
The heatspreaders on OCZ's variety of Platinum DCDDR are
made of nickel plated copper. Copper has been the superior heat dissipation
medium in computing for the last while and should rid the memory of any
