Patriot entered the DDR4 arena with their Viper 4 Series DDR4 memory. We reviewed both a quad channel kit for X99 and a dual channel kit for Z170. Now Patriot has unveiled the Viper Elite DDR4 memory, which is set to be their best and highest performance DDR4 memory available. This memory is available in dual channel 8GB and 16GB kits with speeds ranging from 2133 MHz all the way up 3200 MHz. It also features one of the coolest looking heatspreaders that we’ve seen in a long time! The kit we are taking a look at today is the PVE416G300C6KRD which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit with speeds of 3000 MHz. It has official timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V and is designed to perform best on Intel Z170 systems. Let’s get this memory in our test system and see what it can do!

The Patriot Viper Elite memory comes in Patriot’s typical retail packaging for their memory. The front of the package is open so you can get a good look at the memory before you buy it. The front also lets us know which kit we have, its size, and speed.
Flipping the package over the pack is also open so you get a look at the back of the memory. There is a short paragraph explaining Patriot’s Viper Series DDR4 memory.
Getting everything out of the packaging we have the two memory modules and a Patriot Viper logo sticker.
