EL PC4200 DDR533 Dual Channel Memory Review

PCStats has posted an OCZ EL PC4200 DDR533 Dual Channel Memory Review
One problem that is universal to among all 'high speed' memory modules is that to reach the fastest speeds they must be set to use very lax CAS latency timings. As most experienced computer users understand, CAS timings play a key role in overall system performance. The looser the timings, the greater impact on total system performance we tend to see. In and effort to combat this, OCZ Technology has recently introduced a new memory product which purports to run faster than the competition, with tighter timing to boot. Whether this claim is accurate or not remains to be seen, so hold on just a second before we drive right into the benchmarks. First, let's talk a little bit about this heafty little pair of copper-clad DDR modules. Dubbed, Enhanced Latency PC4200 (DDR533) DDR RAM, this 512MB pair (1GB total) of dual channel DDR boasts CAS timings of 2.5-4-4-7, and comes packed in standard OCZ copper heatspreaders. Copper has always been a good indicator that something mighty lies below, so is this really a sign of what to expect from OCZ's memory?
