Cool ram voltage raising device
A device from OCZ which allows you to raise the voltage on your ddr withou tmodding the board etc
"We have just tested a very interesting device in our lab, which doesn’t have any analogues in the IT world yet. OCZ DDR Booster allows significantly increasing the memory voltage without modifying the mainboard in any way. If you are an overclocker, you will simply love this device!"

Just makes me wonder about motherboard compatibility - all this company needs is one foolish user installing this device on some archaic motherboard that doesn't work properly with it and it ends up catching fire or melting the motherboard and they'll have a lawsuit on their hands... as well as a court order to stop selling these things.
Some people ask me if the glass is half empty or half full. I just tell them the glass is twice as large as it needs to be.

With a well populated compatibility list, I think they're pretty well protected against such things.
The way this power supply circuit is designed, you could generate enough voltage to possibly damage an old jumper-set motherboard, but this device cannot source enough current to constitute melting.
There is, however, no diode protection on the supply to the IC though. This worries me only because if "Joe the foolish user" that Fatal mentioned were to go nuts on the trimpot and be able to spike the voltage too high, that A/D converter would exceed its supply rail and be toast!
Anyone find a schematic of this baby? I'd love to delve into it a little more than just photograph speculationTalking in numbers doesn't make you smarter.
