Good as basic memory, decent price, but no BEMP profiles in Overdrive
This review is from: Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PG238G1600ELKA
Pros: Works well enough as basic ram. Low profile is nice with my large CPU cooler.
Cons: Black Edition Memory Profile apparently means nothing. The latest version of AMD Overdrive, 4.04, comes back with "no new update available" when using the BEMP feature. I have a Black Edition CPU and a mobo that fully supports overclocking of said PSU through AOD. I did juice the DRAM settings in the BIOS manually, but that shouldn't have been necessary.
Other Thoughts: AMD Phenom II 1090t @ 3.6 GHz, dual fan Cooler Master Hyper 212+, Gigabyte 890GX, HIS HD6850, Patriot G2 16GB (4 X 4GB) DDR3 1600, BFG 650W PSU, 1 TB WD Caviar Blue, Cooler Master HAF 922, Windows 7 Pro 64b
