    Patriot Memory has now announced its latest memory offering targeting gamers and overclockers, the Viper 3 Low Profile kits. Coming in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB capacities, Patriot's new memory is just 1.25" tall so as to allow more clearance for large CPU coolers.

    The low-profile Vipers have black, red or blu-colored heatsinks, are XMP 1.3 certified, they're available in 1600 MHz, 1866 MHz and 2133 MHz flavors, and are backed by a lifetime warranty.

    Green PCB looks like SK Hynix BFR non-tweakable timing,with red heatspreader and gold theme motherboard...just perfect to incinerate.

    yea looks more normal size to me... and that low profile super talent, i've seen that in a lot of brands too, but no heat spreader

    also, it looks like whoever took the pic didn't notice the ram wasn't even fully installed!

    It's slightly taller than normal profile to boot. The heatsink extends past the PCB.

    I would not call this low profile. maybe if these were 30nm Samsung's relabeled with a heat spreader. then I would be excited.

    That's "low profile?" I thought "low profile" was those Samsung DDR3 that weren't even as tall as the handles holding the memory in place.
