Never have used OCZ ram, Usually stuck with Mushkin or Crucial on the high end or G.Skill/Kingston on the mid range. If I did a budget build, I usually went Adata. Still using my DDR2 1066 Mushkin Blackline Ram that I got a couple years ago, with my current x6 1090T build and it chugs along good and even takes OCing well at stock volts.
But, at least they still make decent PSU rebadges and good SSD's.
[citation][nom]neiroatopelcc[/nom]I think this is good news really. OCZ modules have been plagued by compatibility issues and failure to perform to spec since 2004 or so.[/citation]They were specific models. Granted, there were quite a few, but they were easy to pick out via ratings/reviews on Newegg.
I've been using 2GB of their Gold and 4GB of their Fatal1ty RAM for a few years now and have no complaints. I bought it because at the time DDR3 was still pretty new and they had the best timings to price (their Platinum RAM was the fastest on the market at the time with timings as low as DDR2, but for $100 more, no thank you). Oh well, I guess I'll buy RAM from like the forty other manufactures.
well with ram prices afalling you knew some manifacturer's were gonna leave the market... didn't see ocz being one of em... but what can ya do guess prices will start going up again with a fairly big player stepping out of the market there goes some supply
I did not read all the thought. But I had OCZ memory, once and it was junk
after three RMA,... I told them to keep the reaper and give me basic memory.
So 128 dollars for two gigs of standard ddr2. Now that was two years ago. none the less havent though of ocz since then.
"SSD revenue accounted for 78-percent of our revenue and just by itself exceeds our historical quarterly revenue totals across all categories, thus reinforcing our decision to discontinue our remaining DRAM products."
Blatantly telling the world SSD's are overpriced, nice.
Okay a quick check at my favorite vendor reveals they haqve no memory to suit my next purchase, at all. An older slower more expensive kit that was close, but sold out and 140$ more than competitors. Yes if you aren't in to win the niche or value race in american markets you might as well throw in the towel.
The kit searched for: desktop DDR3 1600 at cas 8 2x4gb kits =~160$
was planning on running at pc 1564, 8-8-8-22, 1.6 v I can tweek on that some if a paticular kit won't go there.
Doesn't make me sad at all.
I bought a 3x2GB 1600 set, and within a month one stick turned unstable, and at Cas9 1600 as they were advertised, the max I can run the remaining two is Cas9 1400.
I bought 6GB of 1600, and I run 4GB at 1400.
[citation][nom]LuckyDucky7[/nom]"OCZ said that its DRAM products are now expected to have minimal, if any, sales in the next fiscal year and beyond."Because when the quality of your products goes down relative to the price of competing products, well, that's what happens.Too bad- OCZ was one of the top-tier manufacturers of RAM, but not anymore.Whether or not they'll pull a BFG on lifetime warranties on these DRAMs remains to be seen, I guess.[/citation]
Or, perhaps the DRAM market is absolutely flooded by many manufacturers that they ran the numbers and saw a little not even worthwhile gain.
