OCZ Reaper HPC OCZ3RPR16004GK
OCZ takes a slightly different approach to RAM cooling, placing a heat pipe atop its Reaper HPC modules with an elevated sink that allows air to travel underneath. These also make fairly nice handles for removing the modules, though we wouldn’t recommend pushing extremely hard on the sinks during installation.
Reaper HPC OCZ3RPR16004GK modules leapfrog past even Mushkin’s timings, with 7-7-7-24 latencies surpassing most of the field. Of course, these tight timings do require old-fashioned overclocking tricks, such as the use of 1.90 volts and low SPD speeds.
With a DDR3-1333 SPD value of 7-7-7-21, we’d have expected OCZ to instead use the rated 7-7-7-24 timings. Such a move would allow installers to change only the voltage and speed from within BIOS to reach the kit’s ratings.
CAS 7 timings are a good start, but OCZ beats many of its competitors on price as well. Web prices for this OCZ3RPR16004GK 4 GB dual-channel kit start at around $240.
