Patriot’s Viper RGB series is the company’s latest foray into the RAM market. The major difference is the inclusion of RGB LEDs. The Viper RGB is compatible with RGB control schemes from Gigabyte, Asus, MSI, and ASRock. The Viper RGB RAM comes in two colors of heatsinks; black or white and with speeds from 2133 MHz to 4133 MHz. For this review, we will be taking a look at their DDR4 3000MHz kit.

  1. Patriot is binning those ICs HARD. B-die can usually do really tight timings given enough of a voltage bump, but the difference between the 3200 and 3600 kits I have (both Viper RGB) is like night and day.
