The Patriot Viper RGB memory comes in a very nice retail package that shows off the memory and lets you know which kit you have. It also lets us know the memory is compatible with ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light, and ASRock Polychrome Sync.
Flipping over to the back there is some more information on the kit and it does let us know the memory has a lifetime warranty.
Opening the box up and getting the memory out inside we find our two memory modules, a quick install guide, and two Patriot Viper stickers.
