Key Features

For no hassle upgrades, the Viper 3 modules are compatible with Intel and AMD processors and chipsets that support DDR3 memory with specific optimization for Intel 6, 7 & 8 series and AMD 9 & FM Series processors.

Gold Award - Overclocker's Club

"To say I was surprised by the overclocking abilities of this $59 set of memory is an understatement. Rated at 2133MHz out of the box with latencies of 11-11-11-27 using 1.5v I was not really sure that overclocking was going to be a strong suit of these modules. How wrong I was! This is so far the highest overclocking set of memory I have tested as far as clock speed is concerned with a maximum speed of 2527MHz using latencies of 11-13-13-28 using 1.68v. These modules would run at over 2600MHz at 12-13-13-28 for screen shots and nothing substantial in the way of testing. As an 8GB kit, the Viper 3 modules are the perfect accessory for the end user running a Z77 series board and third generation Core i7 processor like the 3770K."

"Each of the Viper 3 modules are hand tested for an additional layer of security as well as a way to ensure compatibility across platforms. Sporting an XMP 1.3 profile, these modules offer a set it and forget it type of option if you do not plan on tweaking the BIOS manually. When run with the XMP 1.3 profile applied, the memory timings and voltages were applied properly and allowed the system to boot up the first time.

Patriot is offering this lineup in capacities from 8GB to 32GB with speed bins from 1600MHz to 2133MHz to cover just about every consumer. What really sets this set of modules apart from the crowd is the rock bottom $59 price tag for this 8GB set of Viper 3 modules. That's right, $59! When you look at what this set has to offer it is hard to go wrong when you have good looks, great overclocking, and a rock bottom price point for 8GB of 2500MHz capable memory."

Hi Tech Legion - Gold Award

"That reason only applies if you don't plan on any performance tuning and want to keep everything at stock settings. There are alternative reasons that faster RAM can be a good thing. The biggest is CPU over clocking. Faster CPU speeds and performance tuning a CPU can increase the cache speed and take advantage of the higher memory speeds. The second reason is for lower clock and tightened timings. If you take a look at my benchmarks, I was able to drop  the speed to 1866MHz, tighten the timings, and get better performance than 1600MHz and 2133MHz speeds. All of this while keeping the CPU at stock settings. The last is future proofing. Higher speed RAM usually has better build quality, includes lifetime warranties, and will ensure optimal speeds when CPU memory controllers catch up."

"The Patriot Viper 3 8GB 2133MHz memory kit worked very well...There was no problem with compatibility and I was able to run the memory faster by lowering the clock speed and tightening the timings. The Patriot Viper 3 kit is priced very competitively and does come with some nice features, like the improved heatsink and lifetime warranty. The Patriot Viper 3 8GB 2133MHz kit is solid memory for any tuner, gamer, or enthusiast user."

Vortex - Gold Award

"Priced at approximately £47.99 / $55 the Viper 3 8GB 2133MHz kit is reasonably priced. It’s obviously more than most 1600MHz kits but then can such a product exceed 2000MHz? If bandwidth and better overall performance is the order of the day then opting for a faster kit is certainly a sensible move."

"Patriot’s Viper 3 Series is sure to be the talk of the town. Visually this new DDR3 kit is enthusiast eye candy and the other boxes are ticked too. Performance is solid and pricing is fair. Those looking for plenty of memory bandwidth and who are building a stealthy, aggressive rig would do well to consider this product.  Viper 3 Series comes highly recommended by Vortez and attains the prestigious Gold award."

This is the first item that i have used from patriot in my pc build. As an upgrade from 8gb (2x4GB) to 16gb (4x4GB, this does the job very well. There is only one potential problem that some users may encouter if this is in fact caused by the ram itself. This RAM kit has reconfigured my Bios(Blk to 103 from 100 and multiplier from 45 to 43). interesting trade off but i cant reconfigure my bios with this kit installed. would buy again but with better frequency since this ram seems to be a bit lower end than my kingston hyperx kit (Read More)
