Bill Gate’s Once said,
“640K (of memory) ought to be enough for anybody”
Anyone who is viewing this website right now knows that clearly, he was wrong. When you’re building a performance system you want all of the components to be top notch. Great ram is key for any system worth its weight.
Today we will be reviewing Patriot’s Viper II 1600MHz Ram. This triple channel Kit Comes out of Patriots Extreme Performance line so It shouldn’t disappoint.
“The Patriot Viper II Series, part of the Extreme Performance (EP) Low Latency line, is the ultimate performance memory solution for the best gaming performance. Engineered for extreme enthusiasts and PC gamers these parts reach the highest speeds and lowest latency. The Viper II series are built using only the highest quality pre-sorted IC’s available and are subjected to rigorous testing and validation to achieve optimized performance and maximum quality.
