The latest PC titles that make use of DirectX 10 crave more than the standard 2GB of RAM for the ultimate gameplay experience and the highest settings. Computer enthusiasts and professionals utilizing high-bandwidth video, music, and graphics applications will also benefit from the ultimate balance of speed and density the new PC2-8500 4GB Reaper HPC offers.
To ensure superior stability and performance over the entire life of the memory the Reaper HPC Series makes use of an innovative cooling solution to more effectively dissipate heat produced by high-speed memory. The thermo-conductive copper heat pipe conduit is ideal for overclocking where every degree matters.
The new modules also offer instant overclocking right out of the box with EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles) programmed into the SPD. PC2-8500 Reaper modules will immediately boot at the rated specs on the latest generation of NVIDIA® SLI™ chipsets. EPP eliminates the need for manual configuration and makes the benefits of overclocking available to the complete range of consumers looking to get the most out of their systems.
The PC2-8500 Reaper HPC Series will be available in 4GB (2x2048MB) Dual Channel Kits. Although the OCZ Reaper HPC series can meet all enthusiast demands, this high-capacity, high performance memory can become a user-friendly household item for the complete range of consumers looking to maximize system performance with additional RAM.
As part of OCZ’s line-up of premium memory, Reaper HPC PC2-8500 modules are backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support so you can push your high-performance memory to its limit.

* The Reaper HPC series uses heat pipe technology to rapidly remove heat from the main body of the memory modules and conduct the thermal load to the extended radiator fin array. The addition of the extended fin array nearly doubles the total surface area available for heat dissipation while the heat pipes warrant near isothermicity throughout the entire design. The result is a doubling in effective heat dissipation at equal delta t or, in real systems, a significantly lower operating temperature of the memory modules.
**OCZ EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) is a feature that allows performance enthusiasts to use a VDIMM of 2.15V without invalidating their OCZ Lifetime Warranty.

I have these running at ddr2-1000, haven't overclocked them but they have been excellent. Running them with a Q9550 z4.25 (Gigabyte UD3R) and 4x2 sticks of this ram without stability or compatibility issues, which is a good sign.
I bought this memory because of the giant heatsink and OCZ Lifetime Warranty. First the top part of the heatsink do not come hot. Secondly when the Epp is activated, the 790FX motherboard overheat. Overall it works great in combination with a AMD Phenom 9850 Black Edition. Good price, and I even received the MIR back from from OCZ.
These RAM are wonderful. In my GA-EP45-DS3R motherboard at the stock timings and 2.1V along with an earlier reapers of PC2-8500 2x1GB for a total of 6GB. My motherboard does not recognize it at the stock timings. So you might have to set it in the BIOS.
