Just curious if anyone else out there uses Patriot RAM. I have 8GB Viper 3 1866 and it's excellent
yes MANY people have patriot ram...
I was only asking. Simply because most people buy G.Skill or Corsair. Sheesh.:shadedshu
I have 16GB of Patriot Intel Extreme Masters. Pretty decent ram nothing spectacular...
I have used the Extreme Masters..... It is decent memory....The Blue is pretty but most boards don't sport blue for aesthetics anymore
Luckily mine does
That looks like the picture from the ocaholic review
I bought a set when DDR2 was new, Haven't seen them at a good price since
Pardon? Looking on newegg 2 out of 3 Z77 boards are blue. Even Biostar is blue now.
All high end boards are not blue. All Biostar boards are not blue. The best biostar is the TZ77E4 and not blue. Asus makes the P8 series, Low end Biostar and sapphire are blue. Most have migrated to black mono or red. The blue limits the aestetics against the mainstream market. Patriot went with Intel Blue here seeing it is Intel branded and the color is awesome though.
I'm using Patriot Gamer 2 Series 4 gigs ddr3 1333mhz 2x2gb
have the 8GB kit of those in my closet, they were in my i5 2400 rig until i got the HyperX ram and SSD combo.
The very high end where blue is less common is not "most boards." That would be the $100-200 range.
Main rig has been using the Patriot Viper Xtreme 12GB (6 x 2GB) DDR3 2000 for some time now. Been pretty good RAM as far as I am concerned.
I got a few kits :
LOL the AMD performance ram was the worst Dave.... Your photo area is setup just like mine
Works well with Piledriver for me:
The other kits...the 200 MHz sticks are good, do 2400 MHz with ease as well, but the blue/red sticks.. man, 6 sticks, 4 not stable, rep never replied, so no review.
Many reviewers could not overclock the ram period with Bulldozer. I wasn't the only one.
I know. I got mine with the APU launch hardware, most likely different ICs, if you got your with BD..that was some time ago!
Actually, they seem to be the same ICs as in the new IEM and Viper3 kits. Those clock decently too, at least the two sticks(one red, one blue) that I have that actually work do clock well.
4 sticks of the Viper 3's in my P55 box server. Scored for $20 a kit after MIR during the holiday sales.
Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM D...
I still have an old kit of 2x1GB with DDR2 D9's on them kicking around in a build for a family member great little sticks.
