OCZ Platinum Series DDR3-1600 Low Voltage 6GB Triple Channel Memory Kit Review

“The Best Performing DDR3 Memory On The Market. Period.” This is quoted from the front of OCZ’s triple-channel memory package. I suppose that there is any number of geeks that would challenge that claim, preferring their own particular favorite brand. Not knocking any other brand of memory, but I guess I have no problem with the claim, as I have been impressed with every OCZ DDR3 kit I have used so far.and every DDR2 kit for that matter. To be fair, I can think of another few brands that I also would have no problem with their making that claim.

And the OCZ Platinum Series DDR3-1600 Low Voltage 6GB Triple-Channel Memory kit is just as impressive. I’ve always liked the Platinum’s nickel-plated XTC heatspreaders, and something about the new Z3 heatspreaders add to that.

The memory performed very well. Platinum Series memory has in my experience always been a mediocre overclocker, but this memory overclocked like a champ, not only attaining a higher clock at CAS 7, but also reached a healthy DDR3-1872 at CAS 9.

The most impressive thing about this memory is the price. The Platinum Series DDR3-1600 6GB Triple Channel sells for $129.99 at my favorite online retailer. $130 bucks for a low-latency 6 gig overclocker! Definitely a value in my book. ThinkComputersg gives the OCZ Platinum Series Low Voltage DDR3-1600 6GB Triple-Channel Kit a 10 out of 10 score.
