Watching the trend of DDR3 price changes is something akin to watching a roller coaster go through the motions, except you can’t see more than a few feet ahead so you can’t exactly guess which way the ride is going to turn.  For most of 2010, users had to shell out more than $200 for a triple-channel high performance memory kit, forcing some enthusiasts to settle for lower quality and slower memory modules. Shortly before the holiday season arrived however, prices took a sharp turn and dropped significantly making the prospect of spending a bit more on purchasing quality components an attractive investment.



There are many memory kit manufacturers to choose from but very few have as much experience and has a proven track record like Patriot Memory. The Viper series is Patriot Memory’s flagship extreme-performance memory module kit, offering blazing fast and highly overclockable modules at an affordable price.


The Patriot Viper Xtreme DDR3 PC3-16000 2000MHz 6GB memory kit is the latest flagship performance memory offering from Patriot Memory. The Viper Xtreme DDR3 PC3-16000 2000MHz 6GB memory kit features a copper core with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum shield, making it highly overclockable without being held back by high temperatures.  The Patriot Viper Xtreme DDR3 6GB memory kit is rated to run at 2000MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27 and a voltage of 1.65 making it perfect for X58 systems that need smart memory for their DIMM slots.
