XTE steht hierbei für 'Xtreme Thermal Exchange' und bezeichnet ein neues Kühlprofil, welches flacher baut als das der Blade-Serie. Dennoch sind auch diese Speicherriegel höher als Standardmodule. OCZ bietet die Speicherriegel aller drei Baureihen wahlweise im Doppelpack für Dual-Channel-Konfigurationen oder als Triple-Kit für Intels Core i7-9xx an.
