It really is hard to find high performance memory these days that is not RGB. Well one company bucking that trend is Patriot with the Viper Elite II DDR4 memory. This new memory is a sequel if you will to the original Viper Elite memory that was launched in 2015. This new memory features a new sleek design and is available in larger capacities (up to 64GB kits) and faster speeds (up to 4000 MHz). Today we are going to be taking a look at the PVE2432G400C0K kit which is a 32GB (2x16GB) kit running at 4000 MHz with timings of 20-26-26-46 at 1.4V. Let’s take a look!

The Viper Elite II comes in Patriot’s typical memory packaging which is red and black and not much larger than the memory modules themselves. There is a “window” on the front so you can take a look at the design before you buy them. Also listed is the capacity, speed, and it lets us know these are XMP 2.0 compatible.
Flipping over to the back there is a short paragraph about the memory in a handful of different languages.
Getting everything out of the box we have the memory which is in a clamshell package and a small Viper sticker.
