2 out of 5 eggsDead After 6 Months

Pros: Good ram until it went belly up

Cons: 6 Months it died. Memory Management BSOD's every 5-10 minutes. Tried testing sticks individually and apparently BOTH are dead. Never OC'd. Never messed with voltage. Memtest confirmed faulty hardware.

Guess I should stick with Corsair and Gskill right?

5 out of 5 eggsGood Memory

Pros: - Fast

- Lots of RAM!!! 16GB is amazing, and I can buy another set to gain a total of 32GB!

- Super heavy multitasking and great for video editing. When using Adobe After Effects I topped out at 12GB usage!

- Slick looking. Black color matches everything else in my PC.

Cons: For some reason it seemed like it would blue screen when the CL was at 9, so I raised it to 10 and it seems to work now. Strange because it is advertised and defaulted to CL 9, maybe it's my motherboard?

Other Thoughts: Overall great memory and I love the fact that I can buy another set and get 32GB.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Memory, Good Price, Bad Service

Pros: The one stick that worked worked very well, had no issues. Fast, great color and a good price (I paid $61.99 after rebate)

Cons: One stick was failing from the start. The video driver kept crashing and recovering. I loaded up memtest, and sure enough one stick was consistently having errors. I started an RMA through Patriot (I guess that was my mistake, should have gone through Newegg). I mailed in the RAM with everything that was asked and have yet to hear anything from them; they received the RAM on 12/26/12. After multiple emails I still haven't gotten a response on what is going on, or even that the RAM was even received. I had to send in the entire kit so I haven't been able to work on my recently built computer for the past couple weeks. Very frustrating.

Other Thoughts: Five egg product, one egg support from Patriot

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm sorry to hear that you had an issue with the drive being defective. Please note that we were closed on Christmas week in observance of the Holidays (with the exception of shipping & receiving). If you sent an e-mail during this time frame, this can be a reason why the inquiries were not responded to, or your case is currently in process. For an update in RMA status, please e-mail

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory!

Kind Regards,
Patriot Memory Customer Care
