We have reviewed memory from Kingston, G.Skill and Topower in recent weeks and today we are looking at a kit from Patriot, called the Viper Xtreme Division 2 which runs at 2,133mhz. We will test it on Intel’s latest Z77 platform, courtesy of the Gigabyte Z77-UD5H motherboard.
The Viper Xtreme Series ‘Division 2’ Edition memory has been designed for the Intel platform and they utilise a custom designed heatspreader solution with an outer shield built around a copper core to provide improved cooling.
Patriot claim that each module has 6 grams of copper at the core, paired with extruded aircraft grade aluminium which works as the outer shield. They say that the memory is built on quality pre-sorted IC’s and are ‘rigorously tested and validated on the Intel 6 series platform to achieve maximum performance and stability’. Phew, they aren’t messing around.
More importantly, they have decided to spell ‘Xtreme’ in a very cool way too, dropping the leading ‘E’. Yes, we digress.
