There was a time when memory modules were probably the most boring piece of hardware in a rig.a PCB with some chips on it. As memory got faster and ran hotter, during the DDR era, companies began putting heat spreaders on the modules, and of course that led to opportunities for decoration. Today, your memory may very well be the most colorful part of your rig.

It's been a couple of years since I reviewed my first kit of memory, a pair of green camouflage OCZ Special Ops Edition (SOE) DDR modules near the end of the DDR era. Here I am, around 20 memory reviews later, with my next pair of camo OCZ modules, their Special Ops Edition Urban Elite Edition DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) 8-8-8 2GB kit. As the original Spec Ops, the Urban Elite is basically marketed towards gamers for a simple choice in building their gaming rig, just choose the camouflage memory. Will the Urban Elite live up to the expectations we have for OCZ memory? We'll find out in the following pages.


Stock Number: OCZ3SOU16002GK
Memory Type: 1600MHz DDR3 240 Pin DIMM
Timings: CL 8-8-8-24 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)

The Urban Elite is packaged in the typical OCZ hanging blisterpack. The packaging is reusable, no hermetically sealing here. The rear of the package is mostly dedicated to comments and awards from hardware websites.
