Talk about “Space Age” Technology!

Reminds me of the Afro pik I used to comb my nappy hair with when I was a kid!

I am forever amazed at the developments in technology over the last 30 years.

It is amazing that something this small is more powerful than the computer that landed Apollo 11 on the moon in 1969, and 1000X more complex.

Sure, liquid-cooling your gadgetry is oftentimes done to prove your 1337-ness, but in cases like Apple’s oh-so-toasty Dual G5 PowerMac and Microsoft’s notoriously warm Xbox 360, we consider the task quite appropriate. In OCZ‘s case, however, we’re leaning towards the unnecessarily flashy side, as the company’s PC2-9200 FlexXLC (Xtreme Liquid Convention) Edition memory touts both air and water cooling possibilities. Dubbed the “world’s fastest DDR2 RAM” at 1,150MHz, the modules feature an eight-layer PCB which hinders crosstalk and improves signal integrity, and sports a “fin-like heatsink” to waft warmth away from the components. Moreover, it also boasts liquid-dispersing units that pass water across copper lines to cool things off when taxing your system.
