Try not to stare at it directly, it might hurt. Lets see what they say about it.

“Viper Xtreme Series, part of the  Extreme Performance (EP) line, is the ultimate performance memory solution for the Intel® X58 system platform. Engineered for extreme enthusiasts and PC gamers the Viper Xtreme modules utilize our custom heat shield solution with an extruded aluminum outer shield built around a copper core to provide improved cooling. Each module has 6 grams of copper at it’s core paired with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum outer shield. The Viper Xtreme Series are built using only the highest quality pre-sorted IC’s available and are subjected to rigorous testing and validation on the X58 platform to achieve optimized performance and maximum quality. These modules are engineered to reach 2000MHz (PC3-16000) at 9-11-9-27 timings and are available in 6GB and 12GB capacity kits and carry our lifetime warranty.”

  1. You left DOC turned on. Not a good idea to overclock while evaluating RAM.

    • How would you go about evaluating 2000mHz RAM without overclocking? He tested the RAM at whatever speeds it is intended to run. If they had stated that it was 1333mHz RAM, he would have left it at stock speeds to test. How else should he have done this?

    • I welcome constructive criticism in whatever forms it may come. Rather than blatantly disregard this comment, lets give the individual a chance to defend their standpoint. Firstly, Clarify what you mean by DOC, this may be a proprietary term for your BIOS as I am not familiar it specifically. Secondly, how would you recommend I test the functionality of this ram kit without overclocking, Using XMP is as close to manufacturer approved overclocking as you will ever get as it accounts for safe voltages and safe operating frequencies for a specific set of hardware. Thirdly, I reached all of Patriot’s specifications, I could understand your reservation if I had experienced ANY system instability, but I have not, I am in fact writing this response on the very system mentioned in this review. I look forward to your Response t1n0m3n
