As you would expect, the Viper II series has a little bit fancier packaging than the G series kit we looked at the other day. Instead of just the plastic shroud covering the modules we have a nice sleek looking package. Across the top of the package we can see the Patriot Memory logo and below that we have mention of DDR3 along with the series name, which as we've mentioned already is the Viper II.
Moving down a little more, we have a picture of the modules. Finishing off the package across the bottom we have mention that the kit includes XMP settings for Core i7 users along with some of the specifications of the modules on the other side.
Turning to the back, there isn't much going on at all. We again see the series along with mention of where the modules are made. Across the bottom we have the addresses of the company's offices with the model being seen in the bottom right corner.
While not pictured here due to the kit being an early sample, Patriot offer a key to 3DMark Vantage. And while that may be something that's better suited to a graphics card, there's no doubt any extras are appreciated, especially when spending this kind of money.
Having a look at the modules for the first time, we can see that there's quite a traditional heatsink being used. Across the top we can see a number of fins that help draw the heat away from the chips themselves.
Both sides of the modules have the Viper II logo on the right side. The left side has the P from the Patriot logo on one side while the other has a sticker that gives us a run down on some of the specifications of the modules.
That sticker gives us all the details we need. As we mentioned before, this kit is a PC3-16000 one, which means the default clocks are a massive 2000MHz. We can also see the timings of 8-8-8-24; while not the most aggressive we've seen, they are not the most relaxed either. These timings are achieved with the help of 1.65v which is pretty standard for overclocked modules.
