1 out of 5 eggsOn my second RMA

Pros: I wrote my first review for this product on 12/20/2012.
Fast.
Was cheap when I bought it over a year ago (before memory prices tripled).
Works well when it actually works.
Lifetime warranty.

Cons: First kit failed within 11 months.
RMA.
Second kit DOA.
RMA again.
Now awaiting my second replacement.

Other Thoughts: To their credit, Patriot has been very quick with support every time I've contacted them. However, I'm really getting tired of shipping RAM back to them. I've now paid 40% of what the RAM initially cost me just in shipping costs.

I'm normally a RipJaws guy, but when this kit went on sale in a Shell Shocker, I couldn't resist. I've had good experiences with Patriot USB drives in the past, so I gave them a shot with RAM. After this experience, I guess I'm back to being a RipJaws guy.

Newegg rocks.

Cons: a little bit tall, but fits snugly under my heatsink.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat part of new system build

Pros: Paired 32G of the Patriot Viper3 with a new AMD FX-6300 and the Gigabit GA-990FXA-UD3 mainboard. Easiest build I have done. Everything detected correctly. Memory was even detected at the proper 1600MHz speed unlike what as been experienced by some.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Looking forward to getting Oracle RAC running on this box with virtualization. Should be sweet.

5 out of 5 eggsGood RAM for good price

Pros: 1600 MHz

16GB for a low price

Nice heat-spreaders

Red metal on black PCB

Cons: Tall heat-spreaders. About 3mm taller than Ripjaws. Definitely would hit a 120mm tower cooler. Works fine with ALCs.

CAS 10 is average. No noticeable difference from CAS 9 for me, but you might have different demands on your system.

Other Thoughts: Got it on sale. Replaced a pair of first gen Ripjaws 1600MHz for 20GB (16GB Viper + 4GB Ripjaws) total in my system. Works fine. No problems so far while playing games, using UDK editor on a huge map, or Maya and 3DS Max.

Make sure you set the timings manually if running a CAS 10 set in one channel, and CAS 9 in the other channel. You can mix and match RAM with the same voltage, but you won't be able to run dual channel, will have to run at the highest timings, and run at the slowest frequency.

5 out of 5 eggsGood, somewhat tall

Pros: It's ram, it works. 16GB DDR3, makes pancakes for me in the morning.

Cons: Slightly tall, luckily I could put in the two slots that weren't under my CPU Heatsink/Fan. Not really a con, but just beware the heat spreaders are tall-ish.

Other Thoughts: Although it says it is made for Intel 6/7 series platforms these sticks work perfectly on my AMD system.
AMD AM3+ Pheom II x6 1100T
24 GB DDR3 (2x4GB + 2x8GB)
4x320 GBSATA2 RAID 0 HDD's

5 out of 5 eggsNice RAM

1 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival

Pros: Clock and timing were all properly detected on installation, attractive and compact form factor (no ridiculously sized heatsinks as on some gaming memory).

Cons: One of the two sticks failed miserably on Memtest86+. I'm having to RMA to Patriot, so I likely won't have it by Christmas, and I'm having to pay shipping back to them on their defective product. By "100% Hand Tested" they must mean "didn't fall apart when we picked it up".

Other Thoughts: I will not be buying again from Patriot.
