1 out of 5 eggsBSOD's

Pros: Price

Cons: Stability problems.

Other Thoughts: I have had nothing but problems with this ram. When I installed it into an AMD machine the bios settings did not auto set the memory correctly. I had to manually set the settings.When installed into a Intel machine XMP correctly sets the bios settings. My first set started to BSOD after just a few days. It failed Memtest86+ first pass. I took this back and exchanged it for another set which also after a few days started to BSOD. This time the memory passes 6 passes of Memtest86+. I am positive the memory is the problem because I installed some known good memory and both my machines run perfectly. I would avoid this product.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Techlvr,

Thank you for your purchase and review of our Viper 3 extreme performance memory modules. Our Viper 3 continues to be one of the fastest DRAM kits on the market and has picked up many industry accolades for performance and reliability. It is unfortunate you are experiencing performance issues with one of our DRAM kits. With that being said, please note that our Viper 3 is tested and approved on Intel 6 and 7 Series platforms. Because of this, the rated performance specs cannot be guaranteed to work on an AMD Platform. You should have no issues on an Intel 6 or 7 Series Platform. For any further assistance please send me an e-mail and I'll be glad to go over some additoinal tweaks to assist you.

Thank you for choosing Patriot Memory!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy!

Pros: Great performance at 2133MHz using 11-11-11-27 Timings and 1.55V

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Make sure to set the correct speed and timings in the BIOS, they will start out as 1600MHz and you must bump them up! A little extra voltage made a big difference in the stability... Windows Experince Index is 7.5 if that matters to anyone.

2 out of 5 eggsLower quality than others

Pros: Looks nice, feels solid, stable at 9-9-9 @1600.

Cons: XMP worked perfectly and set these to 11-11-11-27 @ 2133. Within five minutes I had programs crashing and BOSD. I returned them and got another pair. Once again XMP worked perfectly and set these to 11-11-11-27 @ 2133. Within 5 minutes... same thing. I had to put these at 9-9-9 @1600 to get anything stable. I returned these and spent a little more on another companies memory. Never had a problem since.

Other Thoughts: i7 3770k @ 4.2GHz
16 GB Corsair Vengeance 11-11-11-27 @ 2133
MSI 580 GTX Lightning
