In a bid to offer performance enthusiasts better memory solutions, OCZ Technology has unveiled its new eXtreme thermal convection (XTC) memory cooler that is designed to actively cool-down memory modules functioning at high frequencies. With the announcement OCZ places itself next to Corsair, who already provides active cooling for memory modules.
“To address the requirements of extreme overclockers OCZ is releasing the new XTC cooler which is designed to pair up with the Xtreme Thermal Convection heat-spreaders utilized on our entire lineup of premium memory solutions,?said Alex Mei, vice president of marketing at OCZ Technology Group.
OCZ's XTC memory cooler is made of aluminum, has two 60mm fans and is designed to be compatible with both DDR and DDR2 memory modules. The XTC cooler attaches to motherboard's DIMM socket retention levers and flow the air on memory modules and/or chips.
“This cooler forces airflow through our open Xtreme Thermal Convection heatspreader design to offload even more heat from the entire module array, thus enhancing both stability and performance of the memory, especially when aggressively overclocking,?Mr. Mei explained.
The OCZ XTC cooler is backed by a 1 year warranty. Pricing is yet unknown.
