Bit Tech takes at look at Kingston HyperX & OCZ FlexXLC DDR2-800MHz memory and compared them head to head, to see what budget conscious enthusiast would buy.

"It's hard to justify the more expensive memory considering the tests we've shown - does simply better looking memory warrant the extra cost? Well there’s no doubt the OCZ looks fantastic in a case, providing you have a means of seeing them. You’d think it was secretly stealing the prints right off your fingers considering how easily the surface picks them up. The extra fins do keep the modules much cooler than the Kingston when you crank up the voltage, but this makes it all the more difficult to understand the need for integrating watercooling."
