OCZ: PC4000 more expensive than PC4200?

I see here on newegg that OCZ's <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-146-956&catalog=147&depa=1" target="_new">PC4200 Performance</A> costs less than <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-146-930&catalog=147&depa=1" target="_new">PC4000 EL</A>. Also, what's EL (enhanced latency) if it's 3-4-4-8? Could that be a mistake?
I read on OCZ's site that you might need to pump that the PC4200's voltage all the way up to 3V and that it's covered in the warranty, so maybe it's an overclocked slower model or something.

I know what everyone's been wondering - 2^33634943-1 IS NOT PRIME. Now, wasn't that worth running <A HREF="http://www.mersenne.com" target="_new">Prime95</A> for a month to know?

  1. I'm starting to get the point. I've read a review where they took an OCZ PC4000 gold to 594MHZ at 3.3V, since the EL is supposed to be better, it makes sense it would go as high. I have to wonder though why label a better chip with a lower speed (or possible bandwidth)

  2. Generally if the ram has enhanced latency then the price will jump considerably. Just a better quality of ram.
