Patriot entered the DDR4 arena with their Viper 4 Series DDR4 memory. We reviewed both a quad channel kit for X99 and a dual channel kit for Z170. Now Patriot has unveiled the Viper Elite DDR4 memory, which is set to be their best and highest performance DDR4 memory available. This memory is available in dual channel 8GB and 16GB kits with speeds ranging from 2133 MHz all the way up 3200 MHz. It also features one of the coolest looking heatspreaders that we’ve seen in a long time! The kit we are taking a look at today is the PVE416G300C6KRD which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit with speeds of 3000 MHz. It has official timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V and is designed to perform best on Intel Z170 systems. Let’s get this memory in our test system and see what it can do!
