It must be because they are red

TechSpot is trying to figure out what makes this particular OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 kit "Crossfire Certified". They are bright red and have an ATI logo on them, but seem no better than the Crucial or Corsair modules they tested it against. They run at 4-4-4-12, needing 2.1V to get up and running and can be pushed to 975MHz @ 5-5-5-12 and 2.2V, so whether Crossfire ready or not, they are not slowpokes.
"These ATI CrossFire Certified memory modules were first announced last September 2006 and since then we have not heard or seen
much from these. Other than the marketing spin put in the press release, there has been little information to go on. What we
know is that these modules are designed and certified for CrossFire platforms by ATI, and that is about the bulk of it. So
other than being 1GB DDR2-800 memory modules designed to operate in dual-channel mode at CAS4-4-4-12 with 2.1 volts, there is
not a great deal more we can tell you."
