5 out of 5 eggsNo Problems

Pros: Solid. The heat spreaders are not obnoxious. Simple BIOS set up to get to speed.

Cons: None up to this point.

Other Thoughts: Be aware that most systems won't default to the 2133. With a ASUS Z77 board and Ivy Bridge chip, it was literally 3 clicks in BIOS and a restart and I was good to go.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't buy 'em for the voltage.

Pros: Really nice looking heat spreaders...

Cons: At the advertised 1.5v, your machine wont even post if you set the speed to 2133. You'll need to go for 1.6v to even get to your desktop, and further if you want the system to run under any sort of load for more than a few minutes.

Even then, with XMP Profile 1 enabled, 2133MHz speed selected, timing double-confirmed and voltage tested all the way up to 1.65v I cannot get my system to run stable for more than 4 or 5 minutes under load.

Very disappointed.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm sorry to hear that you experienced some voltage setting variations. Please note that while we test the memory at 1.50v; some motherboards are prone to fluctuations. If you have any questions, please send me an e-mail and I'll be glad to further assist you.

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory!

Best Regards,
Patriot Memory Customer Support

4 out of 5 eggsGot it to work

Pros: It works!

Cons: After tweaking the timings and increasing the voltage I was able to get the RAM to be stable at 2133.

Other Thoughts: Ignore my prior review...should have written after I got done playing with it!

3 out of 5 eggsNot the correct RAM

Pros: Looks great and came in the right box.

Cons: It is supposed to be 2133 PC3 17000 cas 11, instead the RAM is 1866 PC3 12800 cas10. When I manually set the RAM speed and timing it gave me a bsod.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Adam,

I am sorry to hear that you experienced some issues with our Viper 3 memory. Please rest assured that our Viper 3 is hand-tested and backed by a lifetime warranty. We'll be glad to assist you in resolving any issues you may have. The first thing to recommend would be to flash the motherboard to the latest bios. For further support feel free to shoot me an e-mail me...

Thank You for choosing Patriot Memory

All of the Best,
Patriot Memory Customer Care
