This review is from: Patriot Viper 3 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model PV332G213C1QK
Pros: Works absolutely great in my OC'd 4770K rig with an Asus Pro Z87 motherboard. The XMP profile in the UEFI finds the memory just fine and it runs at a full DDR3-2133 while only needing a 1.5V drive voltage. Many other kits in this range require 1.65V to hit these speeds.
Even though having 32GB of RAM and running the RAM at high-speeds is generally bad for overclocking, I have my 4770K running fine at 4.7GHz with this RAM, so I've got nothing to complain about!
Cons: Due to inflation in DDR3 prices, this memory is now more expensive than when I bought it, which is rare in the world of computing. I got it for $250 at the beginning of March and waited to use it in my new build that I put together at the beginning of the month.
This isn't a knock on this particular RAM, just an observation about DDR3 price trends lately.
