OCZ's 1150 MHz memory integrates liquid cooling

Sunnyvale (CA) - If you enjoy squeezing every bit of performance out of your computer, then you are used to dealing with large and potent cooling systems already. One of the more recent cooling trends has hit memory devices - for example Corsair’s pricey 1066 MHz XMS2 Dominator devices, which are currently selling for around $400 in 2 GB kits. OCZ tops Corsair with a series of DDR2 memory modules called " PC2-9200 FlexXLC".

The modules are clocked at 1150 MHz and carry a water cooling system that is about the size of the modules themselves. Built out of a copper/aluminum structure, the dissipates heat via routing water through a pipe that runs alongside the heatsink as well as a fin array that OCZ claims can dissipate heat more efficiently than previous designs. OCZ said that users have the option to run the modules passively or water cooled via the integrated "liquid injection system."

The PC2-9200 devices have CL 5-5-5-18 timings and are available in 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) kits. Pricing has not been announced.
