The Product

Now this is something I'm not used to seeing, the Patriot Viper Series DDR3 PC-3 12800 1600MHz 6GB Low Latency Kit comes packaged in a box which clearly shows a picture of what the RAM inside will look like. I am very used to seeing the usual clam-shell casing that most memory is stored in.


After opening the box and pulling out its contents, you will see something more familiar. There are the clam-shell cases. Since the Viper Series PC-3 12800 1600MHz Kit is DDR3 Triple Channel RAM there are three sticks, two of which are in one casing and one by itself.

The part number for the ram kit we received is - PVT36G1600LLK which is 240- pin DDR3 Memory. Looking closer at the Patriot 12800 1600MHZ DIMMs, you will notice that the heat spreaders are colored blue but they are made of an aluminum and copper composite.
