Today, we will be taking a quick look at the the Patriot Viper RGB DDR4-3000 16GB Memory Kit. These memory modules comes with some nice white heat spreaders, and a large LED strip along the top side of the entire module. It supports XMP 2.0 profiles and speeds of up to DDR4-3000, with low memory timings of 15-17-17-35 @ 1.35v. What’s more, these memory modules are the only one’s I’ve come across, that can be sync’ed with all 4 major RGB eco-systems … Asus’s Aura Sync, MSI’s Mystic Light Sync, Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion and ASRock’s Polychrome Sync.
I’ve tested many RGB memory kits in my time, but there’s just something about the Patriot Viper RGB that I’m in love with. I guess it’s the eye-catching white heat spreaders that make it stand out from the rest.
The Patriot Viper RGB memory kits come in both Black and White heat spreaders. What’s interesting is that you can get higher speeds of up to DDR4-4133 on the memory kits with the black heatshield. The maximum speed on the white heatshield memory kits is limited to DDR4-3200.
