Patriot Viper LED DDR4-3000 16GB Memory Kit Overview
Taking a first look at the kit the thing that really stood out to me was the new heatspreaders. They are all black with some grey designs on each side and a Patriot Viper logo right in the center. These are probably some of the best-looking modules we’ve seen from Patriot. To match the black heatspreader we have an all-black PCB as well.
If you missed it, this is the PVLR416G300C5K which is a Viper Red LED Series kit of 2 x 8GB modules (16GB total) running at 3000 MHz with timings of 15-17-17-35 at 1.35V. If you flip the modules over you have a sticker that gives you all of that information.
At the top of each module you of course have the light bar, which acts as a diffuser for the red LEDs that sit below it. On the light bar there is a Viper logo.
With the light bar at the top the modules are a bit larger than a normal DDR4 modules, but not overly-larger. Officially these modules are 1.75-inches (4.44cm) tall, so make sure you keep that in mind.
