Default OCZ Releases Slim Flex Water-Cooled Modules

From our front-page news:
In an attempt to help power-users keep their overclocked rigs as cool as possible, OCZ has released a follow-up to their Flex memory line-up with the EX design. The biggest difference between the EX and previous releases is that a much slimmer design is used, so that using four modules at a time should be more than possible, as long as there is relatively good spacing in between each set of DIMM slots on the board.

However, that's not an issue unless you want to use more than 4GB of RAM, and at this point in time, there seems to be little reason to go for the gusto. But, the option is here for those who want it (and it's tempting when memory prices are at an all-time low). On the DDR2 side, the two available EX models feature PC2-6400 and PC2-9600 speeds, with very tight 4-4-3-15 timings on the former and 6-6-6-18 on the latter.

For those with DDR3 rigs, the speeds get even wilder, with the top kit scoring 8-8-8-20 timings and PC3-16600 (DDR3-2000) speeds. I'm unsure whether 8GB would be possible with such speeds, but both the PC2-6400 and PC3-12800 kits should work fine in that configuration. Like the original Flex models, the EX utilize 1/8" tubing, which is thanks to the sake of space. These look like a great option for your robust water-cooling rig though, and they don't look half-bad either.

The OCZ Flex EX heat management solution enables high-frequency memory to operate within an optimal balance of extreme speeds and low latencies without the high temperatures that inhibit or damage the module. Each Flex EX memory module features this breakthrough thermal management technology from OCZ, combining an effective new heat-spreader design with integrated liquid injection system and dedicated channels directly over the module's Ics in a thinner form factor.
