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.
Patriot have a well earned reputation in enthusiast circles, having released a range of high quality Solid State drives and memory kits in the last year.
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.
