When you install the Viper LED kit in your system and power it on you’ll notice the light bar at the top of the modules light up. As we mentioned Patriot offers these kits in red or white versions, we have the red version.
The light bar does a good job at diffusing the red LEDs that are beneath it, but there are very noticeable “dead spots” in the light bar. It seems as if Patriot should had added three more LEDs on the top of the module. These effect is very noticeable when you look at the modules from the side, when you are looking straight on it is not as noticeable.
The brightness of the light bar seems just about right as it is not overly bright or too dim. These LEDs are static so they are on at all times. There is no way to turn them off or do any effects. If you do have other red components in your system they are going to look really good matched with this memory.
