OC3D Review: Patriot 6GB DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz Viper Series Low Latency Kit

webbo took a look at Patriot's 6GB DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz Viper Series Low Latency Kit, and liked what he saw.



Check out the review here.

I love those heatsinks. Great RAM, smokes the Corsair in almost all the benchmarks

The gaming benches do show some seperation, the individual testings reflect to the contrary in the main.

Lose the big spike heat sinks, they aren't necessary afaik, the days of smoking ddr1 are long gone - and the big thing is they offend a fan for ur tower cpu cooler that rear-faces.

Price isn't as scary as I thought tbh.

I liked the heatsinks tbh. While I wouldn't necessarily say they are a definite requirement, they did get warm to the touch so were obviously doing something. Having large heatsinks also does away with the requirement for a memory fan.

U take a large amount of copper and put a current through it, it will raise it`s temp. Keeping the temp within the copper, i.e. putting a blue design over it, isn't going to disapate it anytime soon. Not even with a fan. U'r pretty much insulating it in.

U could get away with no sink, and allow a rear facing cpu fan.

Or reduce the fins, lose the blue insulation, and have a nice old style spreader if u wanted - and allow a rear facing cpu fan.

Either way, unless u insulate the heat within the devices, they aren't meant to get that hot these days I don't think.

The heatspreader is not conducting electricty though? It did not obstruct a rear facing fan either, not on the heatsink I used anyway.
