Today’s market of RAM is pretty saturated, as we all know. This means that RAM manufacturers have to get creative to make their kits stand out. Not only that, but with prices being so low it’s hard to offer top shelf stuff for lower prices. Patriot happens to do this with their Viper 3 kits, one of which we have right here. This is also their “Intel Extreme Masters” kit which one can assume goes through rigorous QA for the best compatibility and stability.
