OCZ Flex EX 12GB DDR3-2133
OCZ Technology recently introduced their latest Flex EX DDR3 modules for the Flex XLC (Xtreme Liquid Cooling) series. OCZ was one of the first major memory manufacturers that offered the option of water cooling for their performance memory modules.
The Flex EX DDR3 series comes in Dual and Triple Channel memory, optimized for the Intel P55 and X58 platforms. In today’s review we will be looking at the OCZ DDR3 PC3-17000 Flex EX 12GB kit. They are 4GB sticks of Triple Channel memory modules running at breakneck frequencies of 2133MHz. These lightning fast modules are designed to target gamers, overclockers and PC power users whom demand speed and extreme performance.
At the time of writing this review, these sticks are available for $530 USD through OCZ’s distributors channels. Yes we know it isn’t cheap, for a 12GB (3x4GB) kit; however at 2133 MHz; they are probably the fastest high-density memory modules, available in a 12 GB kit, that is water and air cool ready out of the box.
Will the OCZ Flex EX PC3-17000/2133MHz that are liquid and air-cooling ready, really be a speed demon that will perform as we expect? Let’s find out.
