5 out of 5 eggsSpeedy Ram

Pros: Great so far got 2 sets of this for my MSI 790FX-GD70 mobo compatibility is a lot better than the corsair ram i bought last month...

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: From now on I'm sticking to Patriot Ram, having a large difference in DDR3's pinset is nice so you don't try and put it in upside down, which I've done by accident more than once

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, inexpensive DDR3 memory

Pros: 1.5v spec; fast and stable; compatible with multiple DDR3-native boards on which I've installed it. I recently purchased a second pair.

Cons: Not a huge thing, but the modules can get quite hot to the touch.

Other Thoughts: I've seen a lot of silliness in the reviews here, mainly people complaining about overclocking and voltage problems. This RAM simply isn't meant for mad scientist over-volting in an attempt to get a max overclock; pick out some "enthusiast"-specific RAM like Corsair's extreme series or OCZ Reaper if you want to do that.

4 out of 5 eggsNot the best, but still good.

Pros: It works. all I had to do was go into the BIOS and reconfigure some timings & frequencies.

Cons: It's not as good as other DDR3 memory's out there. Don't try to OC it to 1600mhz. It won't work lol

I marked off 1 egg, because I couldn't get it to run at 1600mhz.. lolz

Other Thoughts: My current Rig:
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 @3.2GHz
Cooling: Zalman CNPS9500A LED + Arctic Silver 5
Video: Radeon HD 4850 OC'd 685/2200
Memory: 4Gb Patriot DDR3 1333mhz 5-5-5-15 @1.88v
HDD: 640Gb SATA Western Digital Caviar

3 out of 5 eggsInsufficient

Pros: Support from Patriot company is quick and helpful

Cons: Memory fails to run at advertised voltage in a 790i EVGA board (origina) board.
Memory is rated to run at 1.5v, however after months of testing and even swapping CPUs, i can only get it to run stable under load at 1.975v.
Did work with Patriot Tech support where I was told not to go above 1.60 in the first session. second session with tech support months later after a CPU swap and many BIOS updates and other tweaks, I was told not to go above 1.95 (which almost worked flawlessly).
Memory ran great at 1.975 for a few months, but I've been recieving lockups again and memory related errors now, probably due to running memory at a much higher than rated voltage setting.

Other Thoughts: I also has the 1 x 2GB modules that did the same thing, but not as bad (frequent) as 2 x 4GBs. Can't handle running vista with 2GBs tho, it's not as smooth as with 4GBs.

Manufacturer Response:


With the newer BIOS updates, the system will run the RAM a bit better, however, running it outside of spec will make the RAM unstable. If you are still having issues stablizing the RAM, please contact the Tech Support team at

2 out of 5 eggsExperienced Frequent Freezes

Pros: Cheap for DDR3

Cons: Experienced Windows freezing at random times. Ran in Vista, then started all over using XP, same result.

Switched to OCZ Reaper DDR2 and my system has worked flawlessly ever since. (Gigabyte board has slots for DDR2 or DDR3)

My setup:

CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Q9450
PS: Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W
Video: Galaxy GeForce 9600 GT OC 512MB

Other Thoughts: For random freezing thought it could be power supply or video. So ran the latest drivers for the video. Changed the stock power supply from Smilodon case to Rosewill p/s, nothing helped. Until I switched out the RAM.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear JL,

We are sorry for the inconvenience that these modules may have caused you. All of our modules are 100% system tested prior to leaving our facility. Please return this kit back to us and we will be happy to get a replacement back to you ASAP. Please contact us at

5 out of 5 eggsworks good

Pros: Cheap, considering what else is out there. This is my first pair of DDR3 RAM I have purchased and I am quite pleased.

Cons: Not very attractive

Other Thoughts: I have noticed some people are having trouble getting this to work on the 790I. As a current owner of the 790I I have to say that I havent had any issue with the memory working on the board, as a matter of fact I have the RAM overclocked to 1700 Mhz. One thing I have noticed though is you will have to manually adjust the voltage. When I overclocked from 1333 to 1700 the voltage did not change like it was supposed to and I would get BSOD during Windows boot. Not quite sure if it is a MOBO issue or a RAM issue

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't last a week

Pros: Worked good..... for a week

Cons: Gave it up after a week.

Other Thoughts: Installed this in a EVGA 790i. Worked well for a week. Started acting up then wouldn't pass memory test at boot up. Contacted Evga about the problem thinking it was the MB. Evga warrantied the board quickly but wasn't the problem. Called Newegg to exchange memory but they won't cross ship even if i pay for it up front. Does that make sense? Doesn't surprise me they wouldn't take back a doa hard drive either because it had a chipped piece of plastic on the sata clip (nope phyiscal damage). Also 30 day returns are from the time you click purchase, not from the time you sign the UPS ticket. Would think you'd get better Customer Service when you drop nearly 3k per order. Might have to shop around next time. It is a shame after 7 years of doing business your still just a number!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Magic Dave,

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory. This is a very unusual situation as all Patriot products are tested before packaging and shipping. Please contact to get information about the lifetime warranty on this product.

1 out of 5 eggsSometime in your lifetime support.

Pros: Price.
Manufacturer claims free tech support & lifetime warranty.

Cons: Horrible response time on Support / RMA (almost 2 weeks).
Suspect product quality (1x 4GB Set failed WITHOUT overclocking within 1 day - second set is intermittant after 3-5 days).
Tech support responded after almost 2 weeks (from phone in & 2 emails), and admitted they hadn't had 8GB working on the Intel DX48BT2 (probably can conclude the same on other DX48 chipset systemboards).
Still an expensive gamble if they don't function properly.

Other Thoughts: The SPD on the kits sets up default timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.54V on the DX48BT2 without overclocking at 1333 MHz FSB. I'm not sure if these modules weren't intended for operation on a 1066 MHz FSB (overclocking to near 1333 MHz. Purchase at your own risk.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for the delay. Our general response time for support inquieries is within the first 48 hours in the order the inquiery is received.

All of our DDR3 Extreme Performance products are programmed by default to operate at 1066MHz @ 9-9-9-24 with 1.54V spec.

Intel chipsets using XMP technology should automatically overclock the modules to the specified overclock settings. Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory. Please contact

Best Regards,
