Patriot launches Viper Xtreme RAM with special heat sink

Viper Xtreme RAM offers better cooling

| RAM News | Posted: Oct 20, 2010 4:02 pm

Patriot has been in the memory game for a long time and is one of the names many enthusiasts look to for RAM for their computers. Patriot has announced a new RAM line that is aimed at Intel platform users that offer an interesting heat shield that promises to improve the cooling capacity, which should mean the RAM can be overclocked further than similar RAM using conventional heat sinks.

The new Viper Xtreme heatshield has a copper insert that runs across the DRAM chips that is then covered with an anodized aluminum heatshield. The custom heatshield provides 5% better cooling that an aluminum only heatshield according to Patriot. The RAM will be offered in three kits to start with that are each hand screened and tested in the Patriot labs before they are shipped.

 

The line includes dual-channel kits in 4GB and 8GB capacity operating at 2000MHz for Intel P55 platforms. Patriot will be launching other kits aimed at the Intel X58 platform user later. The current kit includes an 8GB kit with a pair of 4GB DIMMS at 2000MHz with timings of 9-10-9-27. A 4GB kit with a pair of 2GB modules operates at the same frequencies and timings. Both of the kits have a lifetime warranty.
