Home Reviews Memory Modules Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 2800MHz 16GB Dual Channel Memory Review

Most of the DDR4 memory we previously reviewed were quad channel kits, made available in line with the release of the X99 platform, including the Viper 4 DDR4-2666. Today, we take a look at and review the Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-2800 16GB (2x8GB), a dual channel kit which is basically an ideal memory kit for Intel 100 series platforms, specifically Z170 motherboards supporting dual channel DDR4 DIMM slots. The kit we have here comes in a nice matte black PCB, unlike the previous Viper 4 we reviewed that came with a green PCB. Currently, the Viper 4 DDR4 is one of the cheapest DDR4 memory kits available in the market, but is it worth it? Can it compete with other expensive memory kits in the market? Find out in our Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-2800 16GB dual channel kit review below.

Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 Review – 16GB Dual Channel Kit

This is the second Viper 4 memory kit that Patriot Memory sent us for a review. The first one was a quad channel kit design and optimized for X99 systems. You can check out the review here. This second kit we got is a dual channel kit, it can also be used in an X99 system but it is best suited for the newer Intel 100 series motherboards, specifically the Z170 motherboards supporting dual channel DDR4 memory.

The Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 series features a custom design high performance low profile heat spreader to make sure that the memory is running within normal operating temperatures. It’s available in quad and dual channel kits with speeds of up to 3000MHz. There are newer Viper 4 DDR4 kits that can go as high as 3200MHz or 3400MHz via XMP. According Patriot Memory, they are using highest quality of ICs and are 100% hand tested to ensure you will get an ultra-responsive faster overall system that can handle high memory intensive applications.

Aside from having speeds of up to 3400MHz, the Viper 4 memory module fully supports XMP 2.0 and has an operating voltage of 1.2V (higher voltage at higher clock speeds). It’s available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB kits and the company is offering a lifetime warranty. Another interesting feature that the Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 memory kit has is that it has sensors for temperature. Not all DDR4 (or DDR3) memory modules have temperature sensors on them.

Below is a screenshot of the SPD information of the Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-2800 16GB memory kit taken from AIDA64’s report. Let’s proceed to the next page and take a closer look at the memory itself.
