Patriot PVS32G1866LLK Viper Series PC3-15000 2GB
Result Discussion & Conclusion
Falling just 28mhz shy of DDR3-2000 on slightly relaxed 8-9-9-24 timings, the Patriot PVS32G1866LLK "Viper" kit is certain to fulfil any bandwidth hungry overclockers "need for speed" ; and has actually earned it's place as the fastest DDR3 kit we've tested on Overclock3D to date. More importantly, the kit managed to run at stock PC3-15000 / 8-8-8-20 settings with 100% stability on three of our test configurations and with no additional "tweaking" aka "faffing around" required.
We also need to remember that all overclocking results obtained from the modules were achieved with a measly 1.95v. Adding some extra voltage and/or active cooling to the modules would have undoubtedly seen the PVS32G1866LLK kit overclock much higher. However, as Patriot do not provide any kind of "extended voltage warranty" on the Viper kit, overclockers will have to experiment at their own risk.
Priced at around £270 on websites such as Aria
, the Patriot PVS32G1866LLK comes in at an extremely competitive price point for a DDR3 kit of this speed and even beats the price of some lower rated kits from other respectable manufacturers. Good work patriot!
• Manages to hit DDR3-1964 on stock timings with only 1.95v.
• Loosening timings to 8-9-9-9 allowed us to overclock to DDR3-1972.
• Sexy finned "Viper" heatspreaders.
• Lifetime Warranty.
• Very good price for a DDR3 kit.
• Unique packaging. Not your usual blister pack affair!
• No "extended voltage warranty" to give overclockers extra piece of mind.
• Diddly squat
