  1. OCZ Vendetta 2 review

    8  

    The Vendetta 2 is, inevitably, very similar to its predecessor, and maybe less inevitably Arctic Cooling’s Freezer 7 Pro. They have kept the three copper pipes in contact with the CPU to ensure rapid heat removal, and kept it ultra silent.

    OCZ Mega Kart review

    OCZ Mega Kart review

    8  

    We've been using the Mega Kart for some time now, and it's proved a sterling office workhorse, bang-on for piping around game installations, batches of screenshots, and Alan's terrifying internet discoveries.

    OCZ Reaper-X DDR2-800MHz review

    OCZ Reaper-X DDR2-800MHz review

    9  

    OCZ's Reaper-X is designed to draw heat directly from the memory chips, rather than just around them. Instead of active fans, though, this relies on a ferocious looking radiator.

    OCZ ATV review

    OCZ ATV review

    8  

    We checked out the wasp-like, turbo-charged version of the ATV flash memory stick a few months back and now we’ve got its big brother, the black and blue, 16GB version.

    OCZ Vendetta review

    8  

    The Vendetta is a surprisingly understated cooler, in contrast to its name. It's a simple, effective peripheral that's a doddle to fit. It is one of those blessed coolers that comes without an enclosed backplate for your mobo.

    OCZ ATV Turbo review

    OCZ ATV Turbo review

    You'll either love or hate the design of the ATVs, depending on how much you like the feel of rubber. Rubberized casings are all the rage, in a range of products where differentiation is now the key.

    OCZ Rally review

    OCZ Rally review

    8  

    With some of the highest speeds on test, the dual-channel memory of the Rally nets it some healthy speed scores. While it doesn't quite reach the heights of the Corsair sticks, it still offers considerably better-than-average speeds.

    OCZ Reaper HPC PC2 8500 review

    Memory maestro OCZ is just going from strength to strength at the moment. Not only is the company consistently producing excellent products, but those products are very fairly priced, undercutting high-end competitors by a hefty margin

    Secure Digital Trifecta review

    Secure Digital Trifecta review

    8  

    The Trifecta is the latest gadget from OCZ, and is a variation on the Dual SD card, insofar as it's an SD card with its own USB connector head. The device stores the actual data on a Micro-SD card that slots into the side of the Trifecta

    OCZ Titanium Alpha VX2 review

    OCZ Titanium Alpha VX2 review

    5  

    The shiny, colour-changing heatsink is just one reason to like OCZ's Titanium Alpha. The second is a lifetime guarantee for the sticks run at 4-4-4-15 at 1,000MHz - only Corsair's Dominator can challenge these sticks for high speeds and low latencies

    OCZ Spec Ops PC2-6400 review

    OCZ Spec Ops PC2-6400 review

    8  

    How embarrassing. We looked at the sub-£100, 1GB Spec Ops kit from OCZ as an experiment in how essential 2GB of RAM really is. We really didn't think it would do too well against its 2GB rivals

    OCZ Flex XLC PC2-9200 review

    9  

    At first glance it might look a bit like OCZ's new range of performance memory has been inspired by Corsair's Dominator, but if you were to pry apart those big metal fins, you'd find a very different story inside

    OCZ 2GB Secure Digital Dual SD card review

    OCZ 2GB Secure Digital Dual SD card review

    8  

    Genuinely useful and pretty damn innovative. Very rarely are such words thrown around, but OCZ's Dual SD cards are just that. It's a standard sized card, the sort that fits snugly into most cameras out there, but has no need of a card reader

    OCZ PC2-8000 Titanum Alpha review

    8  

    Before you set out to develop your mad overclocking skillz, ask yourself what it is you're trying to achieve. Do you intend to make an older PC fast enough to keep up with the Oblivion-playing-Joneses, or are you a performance junkie?
