The OCZ Blade 3x2GB PC3-16000 isn’t just about raw speed, though 2GHz memory certainly does that, it is also about not sacrificing timings, and at 7-8-7-20 they have achieved that goal too. The sacrifice that did need to be made is the price; at $450 the entry fee is pretty steep. Hardware Canucks had a lot of fun overclocking with these DIMMs, not only could they increase the frequency, they found room to tighten the timings as well. Check it out here.
“Memory manufacturers have always pushed the limits and few have done more pushing than OCZ. Their new Blade PC3- 1600 tri channel kit is made to continue their tradition of offering enthusiasts the best of the best. They have pushed current DDR3 technology to the max but what happens when we push back with some of the most hard-core testing around?”
