Patriot Memory Viper 3 DDR3 2133MHz 8GB Kit Review

Posted August 4, 2012 by Sam Chen in Reviews

Patriot’s Newest Viper

Founded in 1985, Patriot Memory offers a diverse variety of products ranging from SSDs to media players, but their most renowned product line is of course system memory. After all, the company’s name includes the word memory.

Among Patriot Memory’s memory products, the Viper lineup has established itself as the king of the hill with its gorgeous looks and uncompromised performance, so when Patriot gave us a sneak peek their newest Viper 3 memory kits at GESL 2012 last month, they certainly piqued our interest.

The Patriot Viper 3 lineup comes in 3 different speeds – 1600MHz, 1866MHz, and 2133MHz, and can be found in dual and quad channel kits with capacities ranging from 8GB-32GB. What’s nice about the Viper 3 is that they all operate at 1.5V, so they’re all within the voltage specifications of the Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge memory controller. Additionally, all sticks are hand tested to ensure reliability and comes with a lifetime warranty to ensure that in the unlikely event something goes wrong, Patriot will take care of it.

With that said, today we’ll be reviewing the Patriot Memory Viper 3 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 2133MHz dual channel kit with the Black Mamba heatspreaders.
