Patriot Viper LED DDR4 Memory (2400MHz & 3000MHz Kits) Review

To test the Viper LED modules, we used a system with the following components:

Intel Core i7-7700K ‘Kaby Lake’ (Retail)
ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming
Graphics Card
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 6GB Founders Edition
System Drive
Sandisk SSD PLUS 120GB
Games Drive Crucial M4 512GB
Chassis Game Max Moonstone (high fan speed)
CPU Cooler
Fractal Design Celsius S24
Power Supply
Seasonic Prime 1000W Platinum
Operating System
Windows 10 Professional with Creators’ Update (64-bit)

All four memory kits used in this review are 2x8GB kits, so we installed each module in slots 2 and 4 on our motherboard for consistency’s sake. We then went into the BIOS, loaded the ‘optimised default’ settings before loading the XMP profile for each kit. We verified the timings and frequencies were correct before saving and exiting the BIOS.

We tested the following memory kits:

  • Geil EVO X 3200MHz (16-16-16-36)
  • Geil Super Luce 3000MHz (16-18-18-36)
  • Patriot Viper LED 2400MHz (14-14-14-32)
  • Patriot Viper LED 3000MHz (15-17-17-35)

Our testing consists of the following benchmarks:

  • AIDA64 read/write speeds
  • AIDA64 latency
  • Cinebench R15
  • Handbrake video encoding
  • Ghost Recon: Wildlands game benchmark
