Looking at the package, there isn't anything too exciting going on. We've got a blister pack that is held together with two little plugs at the top. Across the top we can see the Patriot logo while at the bottom we have a barcode. In the middle of the package we can clearly see that this kit is part of the G Series which is something we've mentioned in the introduction.
In the middle of the package we can also see that this is a 6GB kit in the form of 3 x 2GB modules, making this a triple channel kit. Below this we have the speed which is PC3-12800 or 1600MHz. Finally, we also see that Patriot mention Extreme Performance and Low Latency. Unfortunately on the front of the package we don't see what those latencies are, though.
Having a look at the back of the pack, we actually get our first look at the modules. If we take a closer look we can also see what the timings are. We'll have a closer look at that in just a few moments.
Pulling the modules out of the package, we can see like most companies Patriot has opted for a heatsink with fins that protrude out the top of the modules. Both sides of the memory modules are very similar. To the right we're able to see the G Series logo.
On the left side, depending which one you're looking at, we have the P from the Patriot logo or a bit more detail on the modules.
Having a closer look at that sticker, we're able to get a better idea of what exactly we're looking at today. As we saw mentioned on the front of the package, they are a PC3-12800 kit of 1600MHz. We can see the 9-9-9-24 timings which don't really put them in the "Low Latency" area as mentioned on the front of the package.
This isn't the end of the world, though, as we also mentioned you're able to see what the timings of the modules are before buying. This is also pretty standard for a kit in this price range. We also see that these speeds are acquired with the help of 1.65v, which again is pretty standard for most overclocked modules.
