Move over Corsair DOMINATOR, OCZ Technology unveils its FlexXLC

OCZ Technology today announced its new PC2-9200 FlexXLC memory modules. The new PC2-9200 FlexXLC memory modules feature a new unique solution. The new FlexXLC cooling solution one up’s Corsair’s previously announced DOMINATOR memory modules by offering users the flexibility of passive or water cooling. This is accomplished by using a hybrid copper and aluminum design with an optimized fin array and copper liquid injection system.

While passive cooling is perfectly fine for achieving the rated PC2-9200 speeds of the modules, OCZ claims: Water-cooling is more efficient than air cooling, yet standard memory kits are usually not available in off-the-shelf water-cooled configurations," commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology Group. "The new OCZ FlexXLC series—featuring an exciting, novel hybrid water and air cooler based on OCZ’s embedded copper liquid injection system—pushes thermal management of memory modules one step further to keep up with the ever-increasing frequency demands. Moreover, the FlexXLC modules seamlessly co-migrate with any system upgrade to liquid cooling.

Additional features of the OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC modules include an eight-layer PCB. The eight-layer PCB features thermally conductive power and ground planes to help heat transfer and reduce crosstalk. The signal integrity is also improved with the thermally conductive power and ground planes.

OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC modules are available in 2x1GB kits and feature a lifetime warranty. Availability is expected by the end of the week from online retailers. Pricing is unknown at the moment. However expect the OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC modules to be priced similarly to Corsair’s DOMINATOR memory modules.
