A week ago
we wrote that OCZ is prepping its response to Super Talent's and Corsair's launch of 4GB DDR3 kits. Today, OCZ has officially launched both the 1,800MHz and 2,000MHz DDR3 4GB kits.

Both the OCZ DDR3 PC3-16000 Platinum Edition and OCZ PC3-14400 Platinum edition can be found as single 1 or 2GB modules or paired up in 2 and 4GB kits. Both of these new modules are cooled by OCZ's Platinum Z3 XTC heatspreaders and both of them come with a lifetime warranty.

The lower clocked OCZ DDR3 PC3-14400 at 1,800MHz comes with 8-8-8-27 latencies and works at 1.9 Volts. The premium one is working at 2,000MHz with 9-9-9-28 latencies and the 1GB modules (2GB kits) works at 1.8 Volts, while the 2GB modules (4GB kits) work at 1.9 Volts. The newly announced DDR3 modules are qualified on XFX and EVGA 790i motherboards, but we doubt that you will have problems on any other 790i motherboard.

The EPP 2.0 feature is reserved for 1GB modules and 2GB dual channel kits, while the 2GB modules and 4GB kits users will have to set the SPD manually. As soon as they were officially announced, retailers were eager to list those new modules and kits.

The German based K&M Elektronik is one of these retailers, and they should have stock in three to four days. The 4GB kit will set you back €398.99, while the "slower" 1,800MHz kit will set you back €359.99. There you have it, premium kits have a premium price.
