Introduction

We continue to see more and more companies attempt to break speed barriers when it comes to memory. Today we're looking at a PC3-20000 kit from Patriot with a massive default clock of 2500MHz DDR.

 

It's coming to the point where the speed is just so high that we have to wonder what exactly people are doing with this massive amount of bandwidth. It's been a while since we've seen anything from Patriot and we've got to say our initial impressions have us a little worried if we're going to get the speed promised by the company.

 

With a cooler that doesn't look too fancy and no active cooling, we're really wondering if the kit is going to be able to achieve 2500MHz DDR with ease. Before we find out if it does, let's take a look at the package and a closer look at the heatsink first.

 

Once that's done we'll have a closer look at the specifications of the modules and see how we went when it came to clocking the kit. Then it's into some benchmarks to see just what the kit is capable of and how it compares to a couple of other high speed kits from other companies.
