OCZ Technology is running a live demo of DDR3-17000 memory clocked at 2133 MHz at Computex. The memory devices are based on the company’s Flex II design, which includes a liquid cooling technology for memory modules. OCZ said that the DDR3-17000 memory is aimed at "high-end overclocked water cooled systems. "
There was no word on actual availability and pricing of these devices. However, we would expect the 2133 MHz memory to come in slightly above the $320 the Flex II PC3-16000 (2000 MHz) kits (2 x 1 GB) are currently going for. That may sound like a lot of money, but in today’s performance memory world that actually could be considered a bargain. Corsair’s PC3-16000 Dominator modules are currently selling in the $550 range (2 x 1 GB), while Crucial’s Ballistix memory (2 x 1 GB) is cruising in the $600+ segment.

theres no benefit to ddr3 ram til nehalem... so getting 600+ sets of ram is pointless... anyway the new memory standard kits are going to be 1 gb, 3 gb, 6gb, and 12 gb so that you can have tri channel ram instead of dual channel ddr3 which is stupidReply
At what voltage are they running them? OCZ tends to require you to run higher voltages than other companies.Reply
At least that's what they did with DDR2.
^Thats where the motherboard incompatibility will come in, people will stick them in on a cheaper motherboard and it'll BSOD on themReply
