This past year if you were looking for a high performance DDR4 memory kit you basically had to pick an RGB kit. This necessarily is not a bad thing as we think adding RGB to a build is a great thing, but if you didn’t want RGB you ended up spending an arm and a leg for RGB when you didn’t even want it. When looking at DDR4 kits that did not have RGB lighting you basically had to choose lower-end offerings. Well, Patriot wants to change that with their Viper Steel Series. These memory kits have no RGB at all and are available in frequencies all the way up to 4400 MHz! Today we are checking out the PVS416G440C9K kit, which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit running at 4400 MHz with timings of 19-19-39 at 1.45V. If you are looking for some of the fastest memory out there this kit could be it, read of as we take a look…

The Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 memory comes in Patriot’s standard retail packaging. On the front there is a picture of the memory and there is a sticker in the top right that lets us know the capacity and speed of the memory.
Flipping over to the back there is a short paragraph about the kit in a handful of languages.
Opening the box up you’ll find the two memory modules inside of a plastic clamshell package and you’ll also get two Viper Gaming stickers.
