A little over a year ago we took a look at our first Patriot Viper Xtreme memory kit in their 6GB DDR3-2000 kit. Â These kits are just awesome! Â Each module in the kit features 6 grams of copper at its core paired with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum outer shield, which not only is going to keep the modules cool, but makes for a pretty cool look. Â Today we are taking a look a the Division 4 kit of the Viper Xtreme Series, which is designed specifically for Intelâ€™s X79 platform and 2nd generation Coreâ„¢ processors. Â We are checking out the PXQ316G1866ELQK kit, which is a 16GB kit running at 1866MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. Â Read on as we take these for a ride.
Special thanks to Patriot for providing us with the Viper Xtreme Division 4 DDR3-1866 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit to review.
