Article Publish Date:
Yesterday we brought you a review of what may be the fastest Tri-Channel 1600MHz 12GB memory kit in the market as we speak the SNIPER CL7 kit by GSkill. Fortunately by the end of the month we will have two or more Tri-Channel reviews since we managed to secure quite a few of the latest X58 compatible kits by most companies in the field and so today we will be taking a look at the latest VIPER Xtreme 6GB 1600MHz CL8 kit by Patriot Memory.

Usually when we have more than 2 samples of the same base product we prefer doing roundups/comparisons than standalone reviews but that seems to make it harder for some of you to track down specific product reviews and because of that we will be doing roundups/comparisons only on rare occasions. Moving back to the review the VIPER Xtreme 6GB 1600MHz CL8 kit was as expected a bit slower than the previously reviewed GSkill kit but that aside it does offer a very nice balance between price and performance which should satisfy casual users and regular gamers. Since however numbers do all the talk in such reviews let's move forward and see just how good the latest Patriot Memory kit really is.
