5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great speed and it doesn't run too hot

Cons: Installs at 800 instead of the 1066, but I guess that is expected.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great, mild o.c.

Pros: I have 8 gigs of this running at 1102 on an Asrock 780a with an Phenom II x4 940, also o.c.ed to 3.41 ghz.
had to jack the voltage a hair over spec and play with bios a bit to get everything where i wanted it. Could probably push the ram farther, but i haven't got a reason yet. Been stable for 6 months plus.

Cons: Had to set timings manually. no big deal to me.

At one point i started having a lot of issues and I was thinking it was maybe the ram, but it was a bad nvidia driver.

If you can't fit this under a big cpu cooler on an amd board, look at the enzotech amd bracket. allowed me to rotate cooler 90 degrees.

Other Thoughts: In hindsight, does not match the rest of my components color-wise.

5 out of 5 eggsset and forget

Pros: Very fast MEM will buy more, easy setup with 780i MB. Just follow installation timing on MEM box and it will run at 1066 with no problem.

Cons: No cons at all I have purchased several of patriot MEM set DDR2 and DDR3 and all have set with manufacturer settings and no problems at all. This system is 780i EVGA, 2 8800gts, 4 GIGS MEM, XP32, Windows 7 64, 2 hard drives, cooler master wave case, play all game at max on 22” sharp monitor.

Other Thoughts: Can’t say enough about this MEM or company I have e-mail tech support and they have been very prompt and help me resolve any and all questions I have had.

2 out of 5 eggsDid not meet advertised timing.

Pros: The heat spreaders are very attractive in green.

Cons: This memory installed in a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UDP3P and QX9650 would not come close the the 5-5-5-15 time spec. I was only able to get about 4.5GB/s bandwidth no matter what clocking I used. I could not even then run memtest86 over night with zero errors. Worse yet, one stick was just plain bad.

Other Thoughts: I did have success with the black viper versions, they actually ran at the rated speed. I am using Kingston DDR2's and not only do they run at the rated speed, they are faster than rated and give 5.5GB/s with no memory errors and without overheating. I did not have to fiddle with the timing, the mobo found the sweet spot for me.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We are sorry that you had some trouble with advertised timings. If you haven't already done so please feel free to email us at support@patriotmem.com or visit us at our support forums to get your issue troubleshooted.

Thank You for choosing Patriot Memory!

Regards,

5 out of 5 eggsRAMM

Pros: Nice Memory.

Cons: Only thing I can think of are the heatsinks on these badboys, they stick WAY up.

Other Thoughts: Mail in rebate has these around 80$, nice price for 4 gigs of 1066.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat memory

Pros: It's fast, and haven't had any problems with it yet. Easy to install.

Cons: Wish it was cheaper but good parts are worth the price.

Other Thoughts: I've had this memory for about 10 months when I built my computer and even though its fast, I'm buying some more of this same product today to bring my memory up to 8 gigs.

5 out of 5 eggsPatriot Rocks!

Pros: So far it seems to run clean and fast. Scores 7.4 out of 7.9 on Windows 7 RC's performance assessment. Still have to do a serious memtest assessment.

Cons: This is minor, but the listed specs may require BIOS tweaking to be realized. My motherboard initially recognized it as 800, but it was very easy to get to 1066.

Other Thoughts: I've had a good history with Patriot products--from their thumb drives to their SDHC cards to their RAM. Used their RAM in my first build ever. Keeping my fingers crossed on the rebate--not so fond of those.

1 out of 5 eggs'Green' for half-dead Hulk.

Pros: None, as of now. See below.

Cons: One stick sometimes worked at 800mhz; the other was defective.
Would not boot into Windows when both sticks were inserted together, so I was forced to use the surviving one until I RMA'd both of them.

Other Thoughts: I was pulling hair out by the time I cornered what was causing the BSOD issues. I've never had RAM problems before; this will be my first one.
My computer will be offline for two weeks. I love it. Two weeks defenestrated. A fortnight thrown out the window. Thank you Patriot for quality merchandise.

Manufacturer Response:
